A fun loop in Yreka's Greenhorn Park.

Description

Fools Gold Trail is an almost loop that starts and ends off of Miners Trail. The start of this track is where Miners Trail splits Fools Gold and Kid's Trail. Upper Falls Trail splits off about halfway through.

The trail surface is hardpack, gravel, and crosses one (usually) dry, rocky stream bed. The trail is generally flat and is non-technical singletrack. Please note that a creek runs through the middle of the trail, which usually isn't a problem but will be enough to get your feet wet during rainy years.

Like all trails in Greenhorn Park, Fools Gold Trail is utilized by runners, hikers, dog walkers, horses, and mountain bikers, so be careful.
