Expansive views of Sinks Canyon and the Popo Agie River, and wildflowers and wildlife of the foothills of the Wind River Range.

Sinks Canyon State Park 6 miles south of Lander, Wyoming is a treasure of hiking, trail running, and rock climbing. Rightly considered the gateway to the southern Winds, Sinks is a great way to get a taste of some of the most beautiful mountain scenery to be found in the United States and the Popo Agie Nature Trail is a great way to begin.

To get there take Sinks Canyon Road / 131 southwest out of the town of Lander into the State Park and park at the Popo Agie Campground. The trail begins on the south side of the campground, immediately crossing a suspension bridge over the Popo Agie River. The Nature Trail Loop goes to the east from there, though you can go straight and then east to take the trail in a counter-clockwise direction.

You can also reach Sinks from the Lake Louis Loop Road from the south, conditions permitting.

Note that Sinks State Park and the road is unmaintained in the winter.
