Sheep Mountain

Sheep Mountain, a road you'll never forget in Montana

Sheep Mountain is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 3.185m (10,449ft) above the sea level located in Park County, in Montana, USA. It's one of the highest roads of Montana.

Nestled in the Beartooth range, the road to the summit is totally unpaved. It’s an old mining road. 4x4 vehicle required. It’s usually impassable from November to May. Near the summit are only a few historic ruins left from the New World Mining District.

The drive offers beautiful views of the Beartooth Mountains. It’s a pretty steep trail. Starting from US-212 (Beartooth Highway) the ascent is 13.35km (8.3 miles) long.
