A great destination with a lot of potential. Bring a helmet!!! I have had close calls with rock falling from the big walls. Have fun!
The trailhead is off of Cow Creek Road out of Pinesdale.
Take Highway 93 south from Missoula toward Hamilton.
Mile marker 54, look for Sheafman Creek Road on the right.
Turn west and drive 1 mile to the top of a s.hort steep hill.
Turn sharp left to stay on Sheafman Creek
Follow the road a couple of miles including a sharp right curve.
At stop sign turn left onto Main and drive into Pinesdale.
Approx. .9 miles from stop sign, brown forest service sign Sheafman Creek Trail
Turn right onto West Cow Creek dirt road. (GPS Coord: 46.323650, -114.218033)
Drive slowly through the neighborhood.
Park at gate (1/2 mile), or if gate open (summer), park at right hairpin (1 mile).
Approach trail begins at hairpin. (GPS Coord: 46.316267, -114.229533)
Follow the trail through a gate and tress for just a few hundred yards down and into a deep drainage. The trail will leads back out of the drainage and curve around to the crest of the ridgeline in about 200 yards. Look for a large cairn (sometimes missing) and clearly-traveled trail branching off sharply uphill along the ridge until it turns sharp left into Mill Creek Canyon. Follow this trail for about 3/4 of a mile to the climbs.
