Walk around desert lake and enjoy birdlife, marshes & serenity. The Pahranagat Refuge is 5,380 acres of lakes, marshes, wet meadows & desert uplands in this valley, filled with history and wildlife. It's name means "Valley of Shining Water" in Paiute, and is tied to these and ancient people by it's history and numerous historic sites, rock art and structures. It's pioneer history is evidenced by the stone Walden house (1864), and the farm and cattle community which still dot this valley from Alamo north to Hiko. Located on the Pacific Flyway, this refuge is an essential stopover for migrating waterfowl and songbirds. Large thermal springs provide water for lakes and wetlands, a rare and precious habitat in southern Nevada. Numerous recreational opportunities are available at Pahranagat. Wildlife observation, fishing, and hunting are all popular activities enjoyed by refuge visitors. Birdwatching is also a popular activity. Camping and picnicking are permitted along the east shoreline of the Upper Lake.

Nice short walking trail, but far from Las Vegas. In my opinion, it was not worth the drive. I suggest bringing bug spray, the mosquitoes and gnats travel in clouds and are relentless. It was nice to see water in the middle of no where, but you're not allowed to swim in it. The north half of the trail is closed off and dry. I don't plan on visiting again. Well maintained dirt road, any vehicle can drive it. A few camping spots but not much to see or do. I don't plan on coming here again.

Drove around the lake and stopped to have lunch here at a picnic table in the campground area. Relaxing views for the area. Well maintained dirt roads.

Nice and easy level walk around the lake. The lake provides cool breezes, shady trees, and various water fowl. Pleasant morning stroll after staying overnight at the campground.
