Hike the Sinks Canyon Trail

4 Miles Round Trip - 300 ft gain - Loop Trail

3201 Sinks Canyon Road - Search Nearby - Added by Josiah Roe

Fantastic views of Sinks Canyon and the foothills of the Wind River Range.

Sinks Canyon is named for the geological mystery known as "The Sink" and "The Rise", where the Popo Agie River disappears underground along an unknown course only to appear again hundreds of yards away. But what is no mystery is the fantastic beauty of the Canyon: the wildlife and wildflowers, the abundant trails and climbing routes, and of course the occasional glimpse of the glorious Wind River Range.

The Sinks Canyon Trail loop is the longest of the loops along the canyon floor and gives a great taste of all the things the Canyon has to offer. To get there take Sinks Canyon Road out of Lander for 6 miles and park at Popo Agie Campground. The trail begins at the south side of the campground, proceeding across the suspension bridge and then heading to the west. The trail heads up the canyon until it reaches the Bruces parking area which can also be used as a starting point for the trail.

You can also reach Sinks Canyon State Park via the Louis Lake Loop Road, conditions permitting.

Note that the Park and the road is unmaintained during the winter.
