Mountain Sheep Canyon is a wonderful spot off Buoy 44 in Lake Powell. This canyon offers the chance for solitude and small hikes into slot canyon. Mountain Sheep Canyon is also an excellent spot for fishing.

Many people enjoy this section of Lake Powell because of the unsurpassed beauty, relatively low traffic, and nearness of Dangling Rope Marina. There are beautiful campsites and hiking opportunities in this area. If you approach the back of the canyon, keep your eyes open for light colored areas of water. These may indicate rocks just beneath the surface that could damage your boat or kayak.
