AQ - Hacienda Entrance

Hacienda Entrance

Almaden Quicksilver's signature entrance features the iconic New Almaden bell tower and outdoor mining museum in the parking lot of the Hacienda Entrance. The Hacienda Entrance offers two major trailheads: the Mine Hill Trail and Deep Gulch Trail. Enter the Mine Hill Trail, a fireroad once used to access the quicksilver mines throughout what is now the 4,163 acre county park. The Mine Hill Trail is a moderate 6.5 mile trail, which can be used to access many of the cultural sites throughout the park, and major thoroughfare connecting the Hacienda Entrance, the southernmost entrance of the park, to the McAbee Road Entrance, the northernmost entrance of the park. The Hacienda Entrance also features the Deep Gulch Trail, a 1.2 mile trail through the canyon to the south of the Mine Hill Trail. Deep Gulch is a lightly trafficked hidden gem, and although shaded year round, is rated as difficult due to its steep ascent. Make sure to grab a historic map at the trailhead and visit 15 cultural sites along a 6.5 mile loop that takes you through the most sought after historical sites in the park
