Almaden Quicksilver County Park-McAbee Rd Entrance

  • Dec 8, 2012 · 8:30 AM

DIFFICULTY: Moderate

LENGTH: Approx. 8 Miles

SWEEP: Charlie

Hike Description:

We'll begin at the McAbee Rd trailhead, taking the Senador Mine trail to the Guadalupe trail. Then we'll take the Randol trail to Prospect #3, which connects us with the New Almaden trail. We'll follow this beautiful shadowed trail back to Mine Hill. RAIN WILL CANCEL THIS HIKE.

Directions:

85 south to Camden Ave. Take Camden south to McAbee Rd, turning right onto McAbee. Follow it just a few short blocks to the end, at Whispering Pines, and park along the neighborhood streets.

Carpool 8:10 a.m.: Highway 85 and Camden. I recommend carpooling as the park entrance is in a local SJ neighborhood and parking is very limited and residents do not like it. Post in the comments if you desire to carpool. Carpool location is approx. 15-20 minutes from the trailhead lcoation and allow yourself time to park.

    I tried to upload my pictures but it's like pulling teeth. It kept failing and retrying. I suspect it's the website problem since Becky has the same issue.

    Chau I will try to get there for 8.10. I am dropping my husband in Campbell at 8.00 so may be a little late!
