Lander's Main Street
Lander’s Main Street rimmed by the Wind River Mountains.

Incorporated in 1890, the city was named for Frederick W. Lander, the engineer responsible for the Lander Trail: a wagon road traveled by thousands of headed West.  The Chicago & North Western Transportation Company chose Lander as the western terminus of its “Cowboy Line” railway in 1906 and the city was known as “where the rails end and the trails begin”.

Today you can learn the history of Lander at the Fremont County Pioneer Museum and the Museum of the American West.

Stroll historic Main Street and enjoy numerous art galleries, unique shops and a variety of restaurants offering local beef, micro brews and more.

Lander is pedestrian and bicycle friendly.  Rent a mountain or road bike, and cross-country ski equipment and snowshoes for winter recreation.  Stop in at one of the local stores and pick up equipment for fishing, rock climbing or hiking.

Take in a round of golf on Lander’s 18 hole course or visit the well-known Eagle Bronze Foundry.

Outdoor Recreation

Ranked as one of the best outdoor towns in America, Lander is a gateway into the Wind River Mountains and internationally known for rock climbing.

Gannett Peak at 13,804 feet is Wyoming’s highest peak.  The Wind River Range has over 40 peaks about 13,000 feet, seven of the largest glaciers in the Rocky Mountains and over 1,300 lakes.

Sinks Canyon State Park is six miles southwest of town and is one of the best state parks in the country.  The Popo Agie River disappears underground into a cavern and rises a quarter-mile downstream.  You’ll find hiking trails, camping, mountain biking and skiing trails.
