Greenhorn Creek Guest Ranch is located in beautiful Plumas County, "The Friendliest County in California" between the historical towns of Graeagle and Quincy, just 70 miles from the Reno/Tahoe International Airport. The Ranch is also just miles from the scenic Feather River Canyon and the most rugged trans-sierra railroad line in California. This is truly a recreational paradise for people who love horseback riding, fishing, swimming, hiking, mountain biking, fresh mountain air, blue skies, spectacular views, starry nights and unconditional relaxation!
The spectacular and tranquil setting at Greenhorn offers you a wide variety of activities with the constant option of just doing nothing in a gorgeous place! Estray Creek flows through the ranch, feeding two ponds and providing water for our herd. Both ponds are stocked with rainbow and brown trout, catfish and bass. We're ready for fishing and fly fishing. If you catch it and want to eat it - we'll cook it though we do promote our catch & release fishing program. We have poles and worms for ya too!
When you're not horse riding, there's lots of choices of things to do for all ages: horse drawn wagon rides, hiking & exploring, fishing, swimming, volleyball, roping and horseshoes. During our summer season, we play team sports such as softball and volley ball and everyone competes in our one-of-a-kind Guest Rodeo Games
. Everyone wins in our rodeo games and all levels of experience are encouraged to ride!
The swimming pool is a great way to relax after a long trail ride. There is no lifeguard on duty and parents can watch their kids swim from the spacious deck area which also overlooks the horseshoe pits and the corral. The pool is heated during the spring, summer and fall and is oh so refreshing!
