July 8 2018, we tried to hike today, but after 25 min walking the river stopped us. The river was to high to cross it, so we turned back. We didn't see any other hikers. If you go, be prepared to get wet. We'll try the hike again in the future.

We did this hike 2 days ago. Creek crossing pretty cold. Trail seems pretty straight forward until you hit the creek where you need to take a left down to cross the river to continue to the falls.
Unfortunately we carried on along the river bed approx 3K to far coming to large rocks and fallen trees with the flood. If you get to this turn back and find that path that follows to the river cross it on the rocks, look for pink ties on the way and the falls are 3K from the crossing.
Amazing when you get there. In total with missing the path it took us 8 hours with quite a few stops and photography. Should take 4-5 hours to the falls and back.

This hike defiantly takes a while at 14km but the pay off is well worth it at the end! Took us 4.5 hours round trip with a little time spent at the falls The trail is not marked at all so once you get to the starting point you head down to the river and cross it, it’s not too deep, and continue up the trail. There are pink ties sporadically on spruce trees to mark the way though I do highly suggest download the map as well.

Great Hike!! My friend and I did not make it to the main waterfall as we got lost down a trail we thought was the main one. Turned out to be a side trail that took us right to the creek. Ended up finding 3 waterfall pools that we swam in! (Very cold) brought my dog as well and turned out to be a great hike!

Loved this trail easy for kids and such great scenery lots of shade and the water break is a nice cool down on a hot day took my 4 year old good trip would do again

An easy hike that offers a shallow river crossing, lots of water falls, great views and is dog friendly. Make sure you are paying attention to where the junction point is for Junction falls or you may find yourself at Junction Lake instead as it is the more obvious trail.

Quiet, strenuous, beautiful!

Good hike and bike combo. The views to the east are incredible as well to west to the Rockies.

Bring an extra pair of shoes to cross the creek right at the beginning!

Very easy hike with very minimal effort. A nice long walk through the woods and then at the end rewarded with beautiful falls. (keep in mind that there are two sets)
Very dog friendly as there is lots of places to stop for water and lots of shade!
I would love to do this one on a horse one day:)

Just did the more direct route to Sentinel Peak (right side of the route) by bike / hike. 3 hours u, 2 hours back. Definitely doing it again next year.

Nice easy chill hike.

Nice easy hike to beautiful falls. Getting across the river at the beginning of the trail without getting wet is tricky - best to have an extra pair of shoes to cross the river with. Quiet trail as we did not see anyone else on the hike today.

Easy hike along Junction Creek to a lovely waterfall. Often used by horse riders and mountain bikers, but never really busy.

Steady uphill climb on narrow path to begin. Amazing views after about 1 km. Lots of loose rocks on certain parts of trail.
Bit of water flowing down hill. Wildflowers were magnificent and plenty. We continued walking east to another lookout for lunch.

The trail trail is washed out about 4km in but was a lovely hike and there were lots of spots where you could stop and go down to the water.

A lot of the trail is washed out at water sites.

I'm a moderate hiker so this was challenging. 3 k's 330 meter elevation uphill. but well worth the views when you get to the top.

Was there July 14th, 2013 to "work off" the week long Calgary Stampede. The trail has suffered the same damage from the flooding that many other areas in Southern Alberta has encountered. We spoke to 4 people on horseback who turned around at the top area rest spot because of the risk from the sinkholes, however we continued on and once reaching the meadows the trail disappeared, washed away with so much silt covering any sign of the connecting trail. Reluctantly we crossed the marsh and hiked through a field before backtracking onto the same trail and returning the same route, 18KM round trip.

The Sheep River Falls are beautiful, the area along both sides of the river have some water damage but its still easily accessible.
