Dan's Outside

I go, I see, I do, I walk, I think, I like…

Crowds are often inversely proportional to miles walked

Sometimes, anyway. Today I hiked at Almaden Quicksilver, starting at the MacAbee Road entrance – where there were so many hikers and runners that it was actually hard to find a parking space. There were tons of people up to the first fork in the trail. After that there were still a pretty good number, but the stream of hikers/runners was not constant. Another junction leads to the trail that follows the ridgeline to the intersection of Mine Hill and Castillero trails. Here there were only a few hikers, cyclists, runners, and equistrians enjoying the amazingly clear vista that stretched from San Francisco south to distant hills.
