Loved the place, and the trails were nice, but the signage on trails was awful. We lost the trail twice.

Never heard of if before, but several people mentioned it in Lander. We were pleasantly surprised by visitor center and the exhibits. The walks to the cave and the resurgence are well signed. It is an amazing place.

We were there in late spring for the thaw; the river was running fast and furious and then disappears into The Sink. Plenty of parking, good on foot and by car and by bike, too... definitely worth a few hours!

This park is really beautiful, with Poposia (sp) River running through it. This is unique in that the river goes underground at one point & comes out farther down the road. Good place for hiking.

It was well worth the short drive from town. It was spring, the water was really flowing, and the views and scenery were great. The price was right... free!

We were amazed at the totally different formations on each side of the canyon. Our family members who live in Lander, pointed out to us the mystery of how the water disappears into a cave on one side of the road and about a quarter mile down the road, it comes out on the other side as a waterfall.
