Prison Hill is a mixed-use recreation area within Carson City. The Southern portion of the hill is open to OHV use. There are many short loops and rock crawling areas. This riding area is in the process of being professionally designed and upgraded by Carson City. Future plans include trailhead amenities and new, purpose-built trails to be constructed.
From South Carson Street in Carson City, follow Snyder Avenue East for 2.5 miles. On the North (left) side of Snyder Avenue are some dirt pull-offs. Directional signage will bring visitors along dirt road to the main trail head.
