Sheep Gulch Spring, BC1108, once connected Crown King Road to Interstate 17. However, in a 2022 Travel Management Decision, the road was split in half, designating the eastern portion for Administrative Use Only. The trail now is an out-and-back starting at Crown King Road, just south of Bumble Bee Ranch. The trail is one vehicle wide and climbs steeply up to the top of the mesa dotted with many large prickly pear cacti and grazing cattle. The road is rocky and rough and requires low range. The trail has minimal pull-out opportunities. There is excellent visibility to see oncoming traffic, so you would have a lot of time to find a place if you see a vehicle in the distance. At the top of the mesa is a cattle gate marking the turnaround point. Return the way you came.

This trail does not offer any campsites.

Sheep Gulch Spring is suitable for any high clearance 4-wheel drive with low-range gearing.
