Dogs are no longer permitted on the Waterfall Trail or the North Kings Loop Trail, both of which are in the Kings Canyon area and near Kings Creek, according to a news release from Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space. This restriction has been implemented to better protect Kings Creek, which is a source of Carson City’s drinking water.
Signs have been posted at the Kings Canyon Trailhead to inform visitors of the new restrictions. Park rangers will be frequenting the area to educate users about the new restrictions. After an education period, citations will be issued for violations. Dogs are currently permitted on most other trails in Carson City. Visit for information specific to other trails.
When hiking, visitors are also asked to please stay on trails and not create their own short-cuts. The cutting of trails loosens soil, damages ground-protecting vegetation, and creates ruts that may contribute to additional runoff entering our creeks and water systems.
For information, contact the Carson City Parks, Recreation & Open Space Department at 775-887-2262.
