New Almaden Trail is beautiful and shady unlike most of the trails - 6 bridges and a tiny waterfall. Not as busy as some of the trails. Bring lots of water. Great hidden gem.

Alameden Quicksilver was a mercury mine. This place has beautiful green cover, some remainents of old mines, school and other things. You can see some deers on you way. You will not have cell phone network if you are T-Mobile at the base/ start-point. ATnT has decent network.

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

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.
