Welcome to Lander

This wilderness playground landed on the radar of savvy outdoorspeople when Paul Petzoldt started the renowned National Outdoor Leadership School here in 1965. The epic climbing at Sinks Canyon and nearby Wild Iris brings climbers in droves, while expanding mountain-bike trails diversifies that crowd.

But the town's remoteness means few stay for long, leaving Lander in relative peace, retaining its mellow blend of the Old and New West.
