Description - Big Sheep Creek Byway is located near Dell, 24 miles north of the Montana-Idaho state line. The road is mostly two-lane gravel with a few side roads that lead to the foot of the Rocky Mountains that provide many opportunities for solitude and exploration. Once past the canyons of the Tendoy Mountains, the traveler may pass only two or three cars along the entire route. Passing beneath the high rock cliffs of Big Sheep Canyon, one can look down into clear, deep pools of spring-fed Big Sheep Creek. Perhaps nowhere else in America can one see so many trout without leaving the car. Bighorn sheep and deer are a common sight in the evenings. The Byway provides one with the opportunity to see this country as it was experienced by prehistoric Indians and the first mountain men. The Rocky Mountains have hidden this southernmost point of Montana well, and it remains unchanged for those willing to explore the back country.
- The Big Sheep Creek Back Country Byway is known for it's Historical, Natural, Recreational and Scenic Attractions.
