First time doing this part of Quicksilver. Definitely enjoyed it and will come back to complete the entire 10 mile loop

Probably closer to 3.5. Fun rolling climbs and descents with good views. Saw lots of deer. Construction coming down the mine hill trail was a bummer.

Nice trail, deviated from track on return leg of the loop and stayed on Mine Hill Trail, unintentionally. Saw plenty of wildlife, trails are well marked and maintained. Worth a visit.

Nice hike. Was pleasantly surprised by the overlooks. Nice parking spaces. The drive there itself is very good.

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.

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.

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.

It's been a few years since I've hiked this trail...I recall it is mostly dirt and dry. There aren't many trees. I'll need to try it again and then I'll repost my thoughts...
