Almaden Quicksilver Hike - Search Nearby - Added by The Outbound Collective

The Quicksilver Trail is a 5.1 mile loop easily accessible from the South Bay. The trail features a lake and scenic views.

The trails are well maintained and offer good visibility. The trail can be muddy after it rains, and does not have much shade (so bring extra water in the summer). 

Dogs are allowed on this trail but must be kept on leash. Keep your eyes peeled for wildlife - this trail is frequently used for birding expeditions and nature trips. 

The Quicksilver trail follows the Senador Mine trail and connects with the Guadalupe Trail for great views of the Guadalupe Reservoir.
