With an abundance to do in the area directly around The Rock Shop Inn
It is our pleasure to host you while you enjoy some of these activities year round.

So many things to do:

We are happy to answer any questions that will help you make the most of your stay in the area!

The Lander area has some of the best climbing in Wyoming and it has a LOT of it. Directly out back of the Rock Shop Inn you have the Rock Shop bouldering area with beautifully smooth granite problems, as well as a few sport climbing walls to tie into. Ten minutes north of the Shop is Wild Iris climbing area, one of the best known areas in the West with pocket-y limestone to really dig your fingers into. Further north, just outside of town you have Sinks Canyon, with its beautifully striped walls and epic views. These are just some of the climbing destinations nearby.
Stop into the climbing store Wild Iris for more information!

The opportunity to engage in the single greatest way to move forward through rocky mountain-topped vistas or forested stream-side trails is never far away in the Lander Valley.

Lander has earned an outstanding reputation for not only the quantity, but for the quality of local non-motorized trails that give hikers many options to explore.

Starting in Lander, the Lander Pathway System features both on and off street trails that circle the community and connect the city’s parks system. The pathway courses through town along the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River, then up to Mortimore Lane and back to and around town. This is a comfortable walk, especially to experience the town, the river, and the riparian areas along the walk

Lander is rich in Wyoming hunting opportunities. In fact, every single species the Wyoming Game and Fish Department manages, except mountain goats, can be found in the area.

In addition to the depth of hunting opportunities, the breadth of land to hunt sets Lander apart. The county is 85 percent public land. Vast stretches of public land surround Lander. That means hunters enjoy finding challenge in the hunt itself—not in gaining access for their Wyoming hunt.

What can you say about a town where a river runs through it? To start, you can say the fishing is good and really close. Whether you’re after rainbow, brown, or brook trout, the Lander area also offers several species new to the area such as the fun to catch tiger trout and kokanee salmon.

In Sinks Canyon just a few miles out of town, rainbow and brown trout in the Middle Fork of the Popo Agie River are the attraction. In Sinks Canyon State Park, you can’t fish for them, but the pools at the Rise of the Sinks contains many lunkers that visitors can feed from the observation deck with trout chow. The Baldwin and Squaw creeks, which meet up with the Popo Agie in Lander, are good waters for brook trout. The North Fork of the Popo Agie is a good trout fishery as well, especially for the fly fisherman.

The Loop Road, Forest Highway 400 in the Shoshone National Forest, runs from Bruce’s Bridge in Sinks Canyon to the top of South Pass along Highway 28. Along the Loop Road anglers can fish Louis (pronounced Louie), Fiddlers, Worthen Meadows and Frye lakes, stocked annually with catchable trout, splake and grayling. Louis Lake also contains trophy-size Lake Trout, but you’ll need a boat as this species prefers deeper water.

Just on the west side of South Pass, and southeast Fremont County, the Sweetwater River is well known for its great fish production of cutthroat, rainbow and brown trout.
