“A fairly mellow approach for Sheep Creek and Swamp Canyon backcountry travelers.”— Megan W
After the first flat mile above the rim, descend off the lip into the Sheep Creek drainage. Pass a handful of hoodoos and traverse a wooded canyon before meeting the Under-the-Rim Trail and the Sheep Creek Trail at a 4-way intersection at the canyon bottom.
This trail was formerly used for moving sheep around to different grazing areas.
If you're planning to make a loop that combines Sheep Creek Connecting Trail, Under-the-Rim Trail and the Swamp Canyon Connecting Trail, the preferred direction is clockwise.
