Amazing hiking and walking trails. Beautiful wild life. Astonishing views. The trails are wide and offer ports potty’s at the beginning of the trail. They have maps offered so you can pick the best walk for your abilities. Definitely worth the effort

Quicksilver offers several different trails with beautiful views of the entire Bay Area, depending on which route you take. Our family has been numerous times. Dog friendly so be aware there will be pets on the trails. Strongly suggest sunscreen and layers.

Yes but you need a permit, apparently. From the county web site.... Call (408) 355-2201 to obtain an Animal Pulled Cart, Metal Detecting, RC Boating, Specimen Collection, or Photography Permit.

I figure that you can bring dogs in to the park. Since it is a public park you should beable to. However I would keep them on leash like what was suggested by someone who previously answered this question.
