There are not many nature trails in the area where dogs are welcome. It was a beautiful winter walk, not many other folks were out. We saw deer, newts, and lots of deer. Watch out for the poison oak, and yes, we came home with ticks. Good thing the dogs had anti-tick meds applied.

I wanted to do something "California Healthy", while I was visiting my daughter with my friend in January. Asked her to take me back to Quicksilver (we were there in July). The park used to be an old mine and has been turned into this park with many great trails. I am just getting back into exercising, and my friend... More

Remains of mining era building, feeling of total isolation, undeveloped and rustic, some extremely steep trails, not for those who don't enjoy a workout and just want to stroll...

I come here often with my dog because I have found it is the best place to hike in San Jose. Great views, and it gets you out of the city. If you take some trails you can see old mining equipment, or a dam, or a river. I enjoy taking my dog and he has a blast there. We... More

Just awesome! Our kids and their friends visit the park often. They use the various entrances - so a bit of change of scenery each time. Seeing the deer is exciting and a great experience is going up to view the "dam"

We hiked 1.5 miles on a wide, rolling trail to the old mine. Beautiful views to the west and the recent rain cleared the air so we could see all the way to San Francisco to the north. My 5 year old was done after the hike to the mine so she turned around. My 9 year old and I... More

At Almaden Quicksilver Park, all the usual forms of 'transport' are supported. You can ride horseback, run, hike, walk or bike. Trails very from moderately challenging to very challenging (if you are running). Some trails permit horses while others do not. Same for bikes. Some of the views, especially from the higher points, are stunning. There are several ways to... More

Well marked trails. Great views of the city below and great for taking pictures of old mines, paths and animals. Take your own water and food on the trails. Dogs allowed.
