So much to offer. Fishing, walking trails, waterfall. Switchbacks to lakes and streams for fishing, boating, Bring a jacket for evenings. South entrance for snow mobilizing in winter. Locals love this area. Close to Riverton, closer to Lander.

The way the Wind River disappears as a river and returns as a series of springs is unique in my experience. The park is a wonderland of natural beauty; its geology is especially fascinating. The hike to the falls is amply rewarded by the falls...More

The hike to these falls is gorgeous and the falls themselves are stunning. If you drive through Sinks Canyon State Park and park just beyond the Bruce Picnic area in the large parking lot, you will find the trailhead for these falls. The in and...More

We stopped here while on our way from Jackson to Rawlins. We were just there to have a little picnic by the river but the scenery was very nice. We didn't have time to do much more.

Love Sinks Canyon. The river disappears into a cavern and emerges in a calm pool downstream. You can feed the huge trout that live in the pool. On up the road is some gorgeous mountain scenery. Beautiful area.
