Best views with twisty roads

This was our first sight seeing destination. The roads are great, the curves wonderful, the views were breathtaking. We spend the afternoon and it was one of our best trips

We ended up in Lander with a broken camper on our way to Yellowstone, what a great stop!!! Our camp host recommended Sinks Canyon, so we went and were amazed by its beauty and amazing sinking river. Worth taking time to see!!

My cousin and I went to Lander specifically to do the Run like a Bighorn run in Sinks Canyon. The run was super fun and challenging especially with an allergy induced asthma attack like i had. But that didn't stop me. If you are just into nature this little park has a ton to offer! If you are a climber... More

Go see Sinks Canyon. Watch the water go into the ground. Walk 1/4 mile down to the Rise and see where it seeps back out. And look at the size of those rainbow and brown trout. Some are 8 to 10 pounds. If you have time, hike a little over 1.5 miles up hill to see the Pope Agie Falls.... More

If you're in the area, it's a must see. We drove past the park, all the way up to the reservoir. Great views. Walked down to where the river disappears. That was impressive. Also, there's a bridge that straddles the river. Feed the trout at the rise.

15 minutes from Lander, if you half and hour see the Rise and Sink....At the Rise take a few quarters to fee the really big trout. Then go on up the road to the visitors center and walk out to the sink, hike down 50 yards to the bottom for some great pics. If you have 3 hours pack a... More

It's a great half an hour stop. It is off the main highway but well worth the detour. On the left hand side I'd the road is the visitors center and the BIG hole the creek disappears into and the other side of the road it comes up into a sandy bottom pool where the trout are huge. You can... More

Worth it! We had 20 people in our group from infants to adults with limited mobility. Sinks Canyon was one of the few activities in the region that we could all participate in and enjoy.

Not only is the Fall of the River through a fascinating Cave, and the Rise of the River 1/4 mile away unique, but this is all set in a Scenic Canyon with rock sides. The Falls also has a small but interesting Visitor Center.

This place is not to be missed. Amazing scenic beauty, clean restrooms, and extra-friendly staff. The visitor center is nice, but the river is the attraction here. A must see if you are in the area.
