Dry Saddle Trailhead
Dry Saddle trailhead is one of the major trailheads accessing the Frank Church-River of No Return Wilderness lying north of the Salmon River. It provides access to many high mountain lakes along Sheep Hill Trail #575. It is only a 10-mile hike to Sheep Hill Lookout. A loading ramp is provided for stock. The 250 degree view from the trailhead is spectacular!
