Hiking

I hiked this trail in the early morning, and the parking lot was almost empty at the time. You get the best views of the valley in the beginning of the trail, since it starts from the vista point. The trail is mostly dry in the summer, and it's not shaded. The hike can take about 1.5 to 2 hrs.

Moderate level trail with 50-50 shades. It does get dusty and muddy but it’s in beautiful Almaden area.

Quicksilver trail is closed today in an ‘abundance of caution’ for brush fires. There’s a fire nearby (ranger mentioned ‘Mockingbird fire’).

Great trail for views! If you go counterclockwise, expect more of a workout as you’ll be going up hill on rocky ridge trail. Take the time to stop at coyote peak!

I personally like it if I'm not trying to do something hard, but still trying to have fun. it has a nice little snake bike trail of n the side of the walking area. the "bike lane" is nice and bumpy and has some little jumps to do. GOOD FOR BEGGINERS, OR JUST HAVING FUN

Road biking

Great climb! We just did it for the first time. It consists of 3 climbs with some short downhills/flats in between. The toughest is the last climb, make sure to fuel up with some bars or bananas. Some crazy cars/motorcycles on the road, watch out for those. Lots of bikes too. Lick Observatory is currently closed to the public, so you can only get to the gates, missing out on the steepest section. There is a water refill station at the gate though. Overall really nice trail but you need to be in good shape.

Loved that most of this trail is shaded. Recommend coming here as early as possible. We started hiking this around 11am and the sun thrashed us. Thank goodness for the shade. This hike was a bit long for us; we turned back at prospect. One con is that the trail is a bit narrow.

Great loop trail. We did the 4.6 mile loop and got to hike past part of the dam which is gorgeous. There are a lot of people on this hike. It starts with a big up hill at the beginning going clockwise. There are several hills to climb on this trail as well. Views of San Jose and there is some shade too. Parking is in a neighborhood.

A nice wide trail that made social distancing relatively easy. Foot traffic did pick up after 5pm. We passed approx. 30 people on the loop. The trail is even, clearly marked, and well-maintained. Great loop for walking and talking - not too strenuous and easy to navigate.

5:30 pm... still warm, lots of bikers but no traffic. Up hill to the lookout. Consistent work to get up there! I only made it halfway before cramping and had to turn back. Good workout... I will be back to finish it! Warm. No shade! Bathrooms in the parking lot. A few cattle gates to open/close.

I enjoyed this trail as it allowed for hiking during the steep incline and running rest of trail. Some shade, some sunny areas. I recommend bringing a pack, hat and sunglasses. There is a bathroom at the main parking lot off of Casa Loma and plenty of overflow parking. Beautiful views throughout.

I started from downtown San Jose and finished at the Alviso Marina. This is a nice easy trail with pretty views of the river and many people jogging and biking.

Starting from the north side, the trail was pleasant and quiet. After passing under the freeway bridge there were homeless encampments everywhere. A man was carrying a baseball bat and I did not feel safe. I turned around and exited. There was garbage everywhere and the landscaping is overgrown. Do not go to this part of the trail.
