Silver King Trail Horseback Riding

South of Carson City and southwest of Coleville, the Silver King Trail is a 14 mile route open to horseback riding. There are three good access trails to the Silver King Trail. All three start from Rodriguez Flat on the east side of the Carson-Iceberg Wilderness. The Corral Valley Trail accesses the upper regions of the Silver King. The Driveway Trail descends to mid-Silver King. The Snodgrass Trail travels down to lower Silver King Valley. It is important to note that the lower end of the Silver King Trail, in Silver King Valley has no true junction with the Carson River Trail. The trail fades at the south end of the valley. However, from the Silver King Valley south, The Silver King Trail is fairly prominent. It travels along the east side of the Silver King Creek, south bound to the signed junction with the Snodgrass Trail.

To reach the trailhead from Carson City, head south on US395 to Mill Canyon Road, which is 2 miles south of Coleville, CA. At the first junction on Mill Canyon Road go right toward Little Antelope Pack Station. This road is very steep and may be difficult for some compact 2 wheel drive vehicles. At Rodriguez Flat follow the signs to the Correl Valley trailhead.
