Enjoy hike in the woods with very quite atmosphere in New Almaden Trail. Trees give lots of shade and enjoy green and small creeks. New Almaden Trail is narrow. Maybe a little bit slippery in rainy season. Recommend to enjoy in dry condition.

Prospect #3 is a no-nonsense trail that goes almost straight up the ridge. A favorite when I'm feeling like just gearing down and climbing.
