Upper Sheep Creek Falls is a terrific little spitfire on Sheep Creek tucked away in a hidden gorge. Although much smaller than the lower Sheep Creek Falls, it is in a very beautiful location and definitely worth visiting, although it is quite difficult to get a good view of it.
At the end of the canal at the top of the lower falls, there is a dirt road heading up to the west and then northwards upstream. Follow this road which is an easy hike for about 0.5 miles. Before the road makes a sharp left away from the creek, look for a steep spur trail on the right heading down to the bottom of the gorge (note that the spur is located before the road turns away from the creek). It is a steep descent and could be quite tricky, especially if the ground is wet.
At the bottom you will be able to see the waterfall, but you cannot get right down to the creek. There is a ledge with a sharp dropoff where you can view the falls, but be extremely careful here, as you do not want to fall off this ledge into the creek.
