Almaden Quicksilver County Park - Review

You will find the Almaden Quicksilver County Park in South San Jose, overlooking the Silicon Valley. The park covers 4157 acres of the steep hills, cool forests, deep valleys and open meadows which makes it an absolute delight to visit no matter what time of the day.

You will be able to learn a lot about the Park’s mining history through the Almaden Quicksilver Mining Museum. But even if you aren’t a history lover, do visit the park for its wild beauty. Tiny winding roads take you up and down the several naturals and the trails are tough but worth the effort.

Sometimes you may see a few deer and other animals in the area. You can also try your hand at horse-riding and mountain biking and in general it is a great place to picnic in.

Almaden Quicksilver County Park, San Jose Reviews

  • Quite a work out but lovely. Great trails and nice views. Very quiet. The history of the park is fascinating. We kept pondering how in the world did people find this place. We definitely will go back. Parking is plenty. Maps and bathrooms. Bring water, bug spray and sun screen with you.

  • Great open space. Hiking trails are clearly marked in most places. Fellow hikers are usually friendly and approachable if lost on trails. No amenities besides the restrooms near the parking lot. Bring water, snacks etc. Some historic old buildings are visible along the trail. Medium difficulty trails.

  • I run this trail four to five days out of the week. When I was offered a tempting job back in Atlanta the comparison between the beauty and nature places specifically like Quicksilver has to offer and the dry lull of nature the surrounding areas of Atlanta offers was my final deciding point. I continue to run this trail with great appreciation knowing it shaped my decision to stat in such a stunning area.

  • Beautiful park with tons of trails. My go to hiking spot. I take my 10 year old dog here, there are shorter trails for him. But there are also larger ones. Once I hiked for 7 hours here

  • So many trails to choose from. Great hiking trails for short or long hike and a great place to bring the dog. During the Spring season, the hills are sprinkled with beautifully colored wildflowers. About 1/3 of the trail will be shaded, so bring your sunscreen and water during the Summer months, as it can get pretty hot.
