The races are on scenic, hilly dirt trails in the historic mining territory of Almaden Quicksilver County Park.

You will run or walk through peaceful oak forests and open meadows, with great views of Santa Clara Valley, Almaden Valley, and Santa Cruz Mountains.

Although the course is very challenging, the beautiful scenery will make the miles go by quickly. If you’ve only run roads before, Quicksilver trails are a wonderful introduction to trail running. Check out the course map.
