Nice morning hike with the dogs. Several trail options in Carson City’s Prison Hill Recreation Area. We did the North Loop, which is a 3.8 mile trail that provides scenic views of Carson City on the west side of the loop and the Carson River on the east side. This trail is probably suitable year round as long as there is no snow on the ground. Probably best in spring and fall, but be aware there is no shade so probably best during the morning hours during the summer.
