The historic site of the worlds second largest mercury mining operation, this scenic land offers hours adventure and exploration.
Hiked counter-clockwise it is a moderate trail with a mostly gradual incline. The opposite direction might be considered difficult for the somewhat steep early incline up to Mine Hill via the Deep Gulch trail. Plenty of shade as well as some exposed parts make it a nice mix. Truly enjoyed this hike on a cool winter day
I'm not sure where the loop for this hike is but I took another close by. It was beautiful
Great loop! Walk alongside Guadalupe Creek, views of the Reservoir going up. Going down on Mine trail had great views of Almaden Valley. This trail was mostly shady in afternoon.
Hard AF but feels good once You conquer the beast.
I just started mountain biking 2 months ago. The incline is definitely a challenge but it's all worth it when you go back down. I only made it up 1 mile next time I'll do better.
Awesome trail love it down hill runs. High peaks and twists and turns run into a deer and waaaaattt
Kinda steep all at once & go after 2 for shade. But the mine and views. Oh and the the trail gets uncomfortably small for about a mile
Ran 10.94 miles. Challenging but lots of fun. Made one wrong turn but it was easy to get back on track.
huge trail and not crowded.....be careful, loose gravel, connects to sierra azul
fun easy trails. moderate elevation change. hot during the summer due to limited shade at certain times.
Easy and relaxing hike, saw a few dears and a grouse.
