Photographs of Walker Lake in Nevada

Located just north of Hawthorne on US Highway 93, Walker Lake is a natural freshwater lake that is home to the endangered Lahontan cutthroat trout. The lake is quite large, as it is over 50 square miles in size. Similar to Pyramid Lake, Walker Lake has no natural outlet - water simply collects in the lake and evaporates or is absorbed into the ground.

Walker Lake receives its water from the Walker River, which empties into the lake from the north, as well as from rain and snowmelt that runs off from the surrounding mountains. US Highway 93 closely follows the lake along its western shore, allowing for some nice views of the lake.
