Henrys Lake Mountains
Sheep Point (10,606′) is the unofficial name for the highpoint of the Henrys Lake Mountains which straddle the Montana-Idaho border just west of West Yellowstone. There are several routes to the summit but the simplest approach is via Sheep Creek. It’s a well established trail that parallels Sheep Creek all the way to Sheep Lake at the base of Sheep Point. From there it’s a formidable, although not technical, off-trail scramble up a steep cirque to the summit. It’s possible to do this as a long day hike but the camping around Sheep Lake is wonderful so I recommend breaking it up into two days. Nearby Coffin Mountain could be done as a side quest and there’s plenty of cool looking terrain on the south side of Sheep Point that would be fun to explore. Quake Lake, just north of the range, is an interesting side attraction if you’re looking for something else to do nearby.
