Carson City Parks and Open Space Experiencing Increased Visitation

In light of current directives from the Governor related to health concerns, many facilities are closed, leaving few options for exercise and recreation. The Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department reports that an unprecedented number of people are utilizing Carson City’s more than 8,000 acres of parks, trails and open space. Trailhead parking in some locations is over capacity.

 The Waterfall trailhead on Kings Canyon Road is experiencing especially large numbers of visitors, resulting in traffic congestion and parking related issues. Carson City, in cooperation with the USDA Forest Service, is cautioning people to avoid this trailhead during peak times, especially mid-day and on weekends. The existing parking area can safely accommodate about ten vehicles and if it is full, the public is asked to go to other trailhead locations. Please do not park along Kings Canyon Road, which may impact access for local residents and emergency vehicles. Carson City may be placing signs and barricades to reduce traffic in this area and parking violations may be cited. If these mitigations are not effective, trailhead closure may be considered.

 Carson City reminds everyone to practice social distancing while recreating and encourages people to discover new trails and trailheads that may be less crowded.  Here are some suggestions:


•           East Silver Saddle Ranch

•           Silver Saddle Ranch

•           Prison Hill

•           Empire Ranch Trail

•           Wildhorse Trail (Centennial Park)

•           Ambrose Natural Area

•           Ash to Kings Trail

•           Freeway Multi-Use Pathway

•           V&T Trail

•           Linear Ditch Trail

•           Fairview Drive Multi-Use Pathway
