Class IV-V Sheep Creek, ID

Sheep Creek Wild and Scenic River (Upstream boundary of the Bruneau-Jarbidge Rivers Wilderness to the confluence with the Bruneau River )

Sheep Creek relies on rainfall to provide flows to its Class IV-V rapids, and it is therefore rarely boatable in any craft. When it is running, Sheep Creek offers a challenging run with a handful of Class IV and V rapids, such as Gun-shy, Blind Date and Grants Slam, before continuing down to the Bruneau River.
