The V&T Trail is named after the historic Virginia and Truckee Railroad which operated in this region in the late 1800s and early 1900s. A railroad spur was located near this area. The V&T Trail is a fairly level, paved, non-motorized use path located on the west side of Carson City behind Western Nevada College. The path is ¾ mile in length and travels between Murphy Drive on the north end to Ash Canyon Road on the south end. Parking is available in a small gravel parking area near Murphy Drive and Vanpatten Avenue.
