Description: 25.6 miles of Sheep Creek, from the boundary of the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness to its confluence with the Bruneau River, is protected as a wild river. The floatable section of Sheep Creek in Idaho is 19.3 miles long and is rated as class II-V+ whitewater. The put in is at Marys Creek. In a narrow winding canyon with sheer vertical walls, the river is difficult to access due to its remoteness and primitive roads.

From Grasmere, on OR 51, go southeast about 7 miles on Sheep Creek Road. Marys Cerek crosses Sheep Creek Road. The wilderness starts just beyond the road.
