Pyramid Lake is a desert lake located 40 miles north of Reno. The remnant of an ancient lake that covered much of northwestern Nevada at the end of the last ice age, Pyramid Lake has no outlet, with water leaving only by evaporation. Pyramid Lake is entirely within a Paiute Indian reservation. The most remarkable landmark is the limestone pyramid after which Pyramid Lake was named, but as of 2012 access to it has been closed due to vandalism.
