The scenery up to and in the park is stunning! The story of the Sinks Canyon is also fascinating. Great Park Staff.

We actually drove this road on the way back home from Lander to Rock Springs. Wasn't sure if our sedan would make it, but the road wasn't too bad; just take it slow.

Was not sure what to expect but the day was sunny and beautiful and this place was recommended so off we went. It was great! A little hiking, some rock climbing and dipping our toes in the water...terrific way to spend a morning

It's just under 100 miles away in Thermopolis, which take 1.5-2 hrs to drive. It's a beautiful drive down the Wind River and across the desert. As long as you are going to Thermop, consider also going to the hot springs... More
