GREENHORN PARK INFORMATION
The largest park in Yreka, Greenhorn Park has been built around an expansive reservoir sourced by Greenhorn Creek. Trails weave through the surrounding hillside, lapping the lake, while fishermen take advantage of both off-shore and boat fishing. A large picnic area, play structures, open field and a log cabin (available for rent) and restrooms are located at Upper Greenhorn. Along the south shore of the lake there is historic gold mining machinery and a small ghost town. Lower Greenhorn includes a community soccer field, play structure, large picnic areas, horse-shoe pits, and two restrooms. Lake access is available from both Upper and Lower Greenhorn, and each have their own parking areas.
