View of Sheep Rock from Alexander ReservoirSheep Rock-Oregon California Trail

East of the intersections of SH 34 and US 30, Sheep Rock marked the junction of the Oregon California Trail and where the Hudspeth Cutoff diverted from the main Oregon California Trail. In all the surrounding areas, visitors may be able to find the wagon ruts from the historic trek west. On Highway 30, visitors will find three markers with information. A 1931 monument to William Henry Harrison is located there. Harrison lost his life on the trail. Many emigrant diaries mentioned Sheep Rock as a landmark on their journey.  Alexander Reservoir and the Oregon Trail Public Park and Marina lie below Sheep Rock in the photo above.
