Quicksilver Hike from McAbee entrance

We will meet at the McAbee entrance to Quicksilver Park. There is street parking in the neighborhood only to this popular entrance. This will be a 6.5 mile, moderately paced & intense hike. We will go by the Senador Mine, Guadalupe reservoir, out to the Providencia Pond before returning along the New Almaden trail.

      Here is mine. Don't worry if they don't agree with each other. I think my data is only for reference. I hike at the same place 4 times the app shows different data each time.

    It was really a fun hike. I actually missed my 1:30 cooking class due to the extension of the hike but I don't feel regret at all!! Nice people and I enjoyed the conversation with them. Thanks Kelly and Dave. I will definitely come again.

    Kelly's right, we didn't quite hit the big One Zero. Maybe next time. Anyway, scenery, lighting, temp & oh yes, our entire entourage (including our four pawed companions) had a great time. So kudos to ALL !
