Woods trail is a nice entrance to explore this part of Quicksilver without the steep walls you find off of New Almaden or Mockingbird entrance. The trail shown is NOT 10 miles as noted in the description. Another reviewer estimated 2.7, which is more realistic. You can expand this trail by doing a loop around Mine Hill and Castillero. Gorgeous views and the trails have been recently graded and cleaned as part of a park maintenance plan.
