"If you prefer your history laced with fresh air, Almaden Quicksilver is an ideal hiking destination. This nearly 4,000-acre park, a former mercury mine, hosts trails that wind past mining artifacts, shuttered shafts, and former settlements. In addition to the mining remnants, there are plenty of natural wonders here— scads of wildflowers, gorgeous oaks scattered in grassland, and a healthy animal population." Read more

Some nice views and pretty flowers, but nothing out of the ordinary. We all expect dog owners to clean up after their canines. Wish the equestrians would do the same on shared trails.
