One of only two large natural lakes in Nevada, Walker Lake provides habitat for endangered Lahontan cutthroat trout. The 38,000-acre lake has a shoreline that varies from steep and rocky on the west side to sandy beaches on its east side. Regal Mt. Grant towers above the lake. Walker Lake is an oasis for migratory birds including the common loon. Snow geese, white pelicans, and several species of grebe are sometimes joined by brants, harlequin ducks, and oldsquaws. Snowy plovers feed along the shoreline and American avocets and black-necked stilts wade the shallows.
