Snail Trail is a mission in Grand Theft Auto: San Andreas given to protagonist Carl Johnson by the C.R.A.S.H. team from Carl's garage in the Doherty district of San Fierro, San Andreas.


Carl goes inside the garage, who gets welcomed by Jethro. He says that some cops are looking for CJ in the office. Carl realizes its Frank Tenpenny and Eddie Pulaski. He then gets welcomed by them, saying how things are going, and how his brother is doing. Later on, they order Carl to kill a young journalist, who is apparently onto the C.R.A.S.H. officers. Pulaski also tells Carl to kill the reporter who is supposedly going to meet the young journalist at the end of Yacht Harbor in Santa Maria Beach, Los Santos.

Carl heads for and obtains a sniper rifle hidden by Tenpenny at the construction site beside the garage. After so, he heads to Cranberry Station, just across the street from the garage, where the reporter is waiting for a train to board. A little later, the journalist boards the train, and Carl pursues it. The train stops at Market Station in Market, and the reporter disembarks the train. He then hails and boards a taxi and heads for the end of Yacht Harbor in Santa Maria Beach. Carl discreetly follows him. Once the reporter arrives at his destination, he meets the journalist, and starts talking. However, from a distance, Carl assassinates both the journalist and reporter.


Jethro: Hey, CJ, wassup?

Carl Johnson: Hey wassup, Jethro?

Jethro: Some cops are lookin' for you in the office, man.

(Carl looks inside the office)

Carl Johnson: Tenpenny. Alright, man, I got it.

(Carl goes inside the office)

Carl Johnson: Nice to see y'all kicking back.

Frank Tenpenny: Hmmmm?

Eddie Pulaski: I wonder how your brother's sleeping, curled up next to his shower daddy while you live comfortably on the outside?

Carl Johnson: Man, what you want all this time?

Frank Tenpenny: Well, what we want is to get on with our jobs in peace, without some damn bleeding heart liberal poking his nose into affairs he won't even understand.

Carl Johnson: The press onto y'all?

Eddie Pulaski: What the hell would you know about it, boy?

Frank Tenpenny: Woah, easy there, Eddie, let's not get ahead of ourselves. Some young journalist out there is trying to get a name for himself.

Eddie Pulaski: He doesn't know how the streets work - that he's supposed to report what he's supposed to report.

Frank Tenpenny: Yeah, anyway, we need you to shut him up for us.

Eddie Pulaski: And that stoolie - shut him up too!

Frank Tenpenny: Yeah, there's some reporter who's digging up dirt on Pulaski, we don't know who's talking, but we know the reporter's meeting him today.

Eddie Pulaski: Take care of him.

Frank Tenpenny: Oh - this is nice place... Carl.


Like all missions in which the boss is C.R.A.S.H., there is no reward, however, the mission Ice Cold Killa is unlocked.


  • If the player has a sniper rifle in their inventory before the mission is started, it will be removed during the course of the cutscene, and the player is forced to pick up the one at the construction site.
  • A Sanchez spawns in this mission, beside the northern wall of Cranberry Station.
    • However, a much easier way to follow the reporter is to board the train on foot. The player must remember to get out of sight shortly after reaching Market Station to not get caught, however
