You follow the blue line (faded in some areas) around several blocks in the historic section of Carson City. It's a great way to kill time, or if you're a history buff to check out the building and homes, many being restored.
It was a lovely day and we enjoyed our walk through the city following the blue line.
It leads to historic residences and government businesses. Lots of info at each stop by reading a brochure or listening to a phone app.
It took about 2...More
After visiting the Nevada State Capitol building, we headed out for a walk along this trail. We used the Carson City app to help us, but once we got started near the State Museum, it was easy to follow the painted blue line throughout the...More
Although snow from the recent Maria of a storm covered the blue line of the Trail, a free map in the "things to do" magazine from the motel (also available elsewhere) made the wander easy. The map also includes brief descriptions of the houses. (There's...More
The Blue Line Trail showcases the old, historic Carson City and has some fine architecture for those who love the 1860's homes - many occupied by former governors and those who founded Carson City. Easy to follow by foot or by car.

Certainly time well spent walking the Kit Carson Trail in beautiful Carson City. You get a real feel for the time era of the old west as you visit the various buildings along this historic trail through the state capitol.
Following on from SF, Sacramento, Reno, and Lake Tahoe, YOSEMITE was the first on my 'bucket list.' We drove from Lake Tahoe, via the Kit Carson trail, to our pre booked accommodation in Merced's Vagabond inn.(£29.00 Friday night). Hotel although clean, did not rate as high as the previous Ho Jo and even the Good Nite Inn. 4 out of 10, mainly because its very close to the freeway, and what's worse the goods trains seem to run all thru the night, tooting their warning horn as they go thru...More

Shoot. I wish you had been able to ask for advice before your trip. Oh well. Next time. FYI It is illegal to sleep in your car in Yosemite, except in your campsite. Thanks for sharing your report and letting us know how much you enjoyed the Park. It's a beautiful place!
