(Lander, Wyo.) – The Lander area’s outdoor recreation assets are no stranger to getting shout-outs in outdoor publications, and most recently national publication American Profile included a Sinks Canyon State Park trail in a list of “10 Trails Every Hiker Should Tackle.”

The four mile Canyon Trial inside the state park made the number 3 spot on the list. “Inspired to someday hike sections of the Continental Divide Trail?” states the article from last month. “This four-mile day hike in similar terrain takes you through sagebrush meadows, aspen and pine groves, and over glacial moraines.”

The Canyon Trail is a loop that leaves from the Sinks Canyon Campground that follows the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie for a little while before climbing a portion of the southern wall of the canyon.

The list of trails, which are “can’t miss trails for hobby hikers,”┬áspans the entire country, highlighting spots in Oregon, Louisana, Arizona and more.
