Climbers' Access to Castle Crag Plus East and West Sheafman Peaks

Sheafman Creek Trailhead
From Hwy 93 about 5 miles north of Hamilton, turn west at the Woodside Crossing (marked by a stop light) onto Dutch Hill Road.

In about 2.5 miles you will reach a T intersection. Turn right (north) onto Bowman Road and follow it as it completes two 90 degree turns (left then right – west then north).

In .2 miles turn left (west) onto the gravel West Cow Creek Road.

Drive an additional 5 miles to the trailhead, which is marked (right side of the road) with a Forest Service sign. This often-vandalized sign was in good shape when I last visited (1oct08).
