Salmon Lake is in the vicinity of Willow Lakes below East Thorn Peak in the Eagles Nest Wilderness at about 11,200 feet. I'm not sure why it's named separately, unlike the four nearby Willow Lakes. I guess that's because it's fed by a different creek and is slightly larger than any of the Willow Lakes. Hiking access to Salmon Lake is via the Willow Lakes Trail #36 and a short spur trail #36.1A.
