Came on a Sat afternoon amid Covid. Great spot to hike, lots of trails and not so packed in terms of foot traffic and some parking available in the neighborhood. Sporadic shade throughout with some inclined trails. Please read the signs when parking as residents have requests.

Plenty of parking in the neighborhood even during COVID. Unfortunately not a lot of shade throughout the trail, specifically on a hot day it may feel excruciatingly long with the inclines. The 2 mile Mine hike isn't bad, pure dirt trail with plenty of space between other hikers. Lots of folks bring dogs. Great sporadic views throughout. Portapotties at the entrance to the trails is a plus with maps available to grab and go.

There are several entrances to this park, but all the available trails involve some steep and slippery sections somewhere. Most of the trails have no shade. The views of Almaden Valley on the trail are quite nice.

There are a lot of great hiking trails with beautiful scenery and views. At one part of one of the trails, we passed by the Almaden Reservoir, which was quite nice. Some of the hike is in the open and some in the shade. Bring masks because although it isn't crowded, we passed a number of people and some of the paths are narrow. We will definetly hike in this area again.

We went to Almaden Quicksilver County Park. There is a nice reservoir. There is also lots of hiking, We liked seeing the mining exhibits. This was the first mine in California.
