The Veterans Memorial Trail at Greenhorn Park in Yreka, California is an easy 0.6-mile trail that encompasses Greenhorn Reservoir with views of the surrounding mountains.
The trail is smooth with crushed stone and pavement, which also makes it fully accessible. The southern trailhead can be found at the end of Ranch Road where the trail heads north to circle the reservoir. It ends along the Miners Trail, just 0.2-miles from the southern trailhead on the other side of the reservoir.
Views of the surrounding mountains can be found along most of the banks of the reservoir.

MyHikes is an indie web platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. The site has no investors and is owned and operated by one person, Dave Miller / Admin. As the main contributor and doer-of-all-things for MyHikes, I share my experiences from hikes and backpacking trips on MyHikes for fun on a volunteer basis and I believe that public trail information should be available to everyone.
It takes a lot of time 🕦, money 💰, and effort (including espresso shots ☕) to run MyHikes, including hiking , mapping , writing , and publishing new trails with high-quality content... along with building new features, moderating, and site maintainance . I simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your next adventure that you consider making a small donation to help keep the site running.
You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes user account required) to unlock perks for as little as $0.83/month with a 1-time non-recurring payment 👍 Or you can simply Donate any amount without a MyHikes user account. Otherwise, telling your friends about MyHikes is the next-best thing to a donation - both quick and free 😄
Thanks for visiting MyHikes and have a great hike! ✌
