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.

Nice uphills and downs. Trail was quite busy by late morning. But you can see why -- beautiful spot, lots of area to explore. Plan your route in advance and watch for the sign posts. We took a few wrong turns, but loved the single track trails we found. Will definitely go back to explore more!

So nice right now. The bridges are stunning.

A worthy hike! Exposed enough to require head cover in heat. I love this loop. You can easily lengthen or shorten it as desired. So good. Note: mountain bikes predominate, and I've seen a rattler here as well. Best to keep your ears open for both hazards. Great hike!

Nice warm up walk.
