Thompsons Hole, FR 363, is a fun, rocky trail leading to the Fall River and Sheep Falls. Photos don't do the waterfall justice. It doesn't show the mist you feel that the gentle breeze lays upon you as the water violently tumbles into this 3-sided hole to the Fall River below, along with the loud rumbling sound from the multiple falls making conversation complicated along with that somewhat overwhelming feeling at the crest of the falls. Aspens, pine, and spruce line the trail with tall green grass. The occasional clearing with colorful wildflowers makes for a pleasant drive. There are rocky sections requiring decent ground clearance and 4-wheel drive. There's only one campsite along this trail, but it's gorgeous along the river a half mile upstream from the waterfall with easy access to a much calmer section of the Fall River.
