Begin at the Hacienda trailhead. Take Mine Hill Trail (the main trail next to the trailhead), and you can stop to observe the Almaden Quicksilver Chimney and old tramway location. When you reach a juncture, take the middle path to remain on Mine Hill Trail. At the next juncture, take the right trail, and continue on Hacienda Trail. When you reach intersections on this trail, take the right trail to remain on Hacienda Trail. After reaching the first intersection again, take Mine Hill Trail to head back to the Hacienda parking lot.
