Time To Complete

This hike is a nice way to stretch your legs at 3 miles round trip, with the potential jumping off point for a full day hike and many overnight options as well. About 15 minutes from downtown Lander. Drive up Sinks Canyon (named for the fact that the Popo Agie River disappears underground for 1/2 mile before rising up in a pool. This pool is home to the largest collection of big fish you will see in the area. For .25 you can feed them but fishing is illegal). Park in the large lot (Bruce's Bridge) just before the switchbacks.  The hike gains about 700 feet of elevation in the 1.5 miles to the Falls. You can make the falls your destination and dip your toes or if you are brave enough ride the slide or continue on up the Middle Fork Trail for a longer adventure.  The trail is well established. Kid and pet friendly. Many other options exist please just check with the staff at Wild Iris if you want to go a little further or plan for an overnight. 307-332-4541 or wildiris@wildirisclimbing.com
