Please join fellow BAWSC participants for a spring hike to get our legs and lungs into shape to hit the water this year!This years hike will take place in Almaden Quicksilver County Park in San Jose weather permitting.
The park is the site of over 135 years of mining activities and former home to more than 1,800 miners and their families. The park encompasses 4,163 acres, occupying a majority of Capitancillos Ridge. During early spring, the park offers one of the most spectacular wi ldflower displays in the region. Remnants of the mining era also offer an exciting look into mining operations of the latter part of the 19th century
There is no BAWSC event fee for this event and there is no fee to enter the park.
Please try and carpool to this event using the club message board to arrange car-pools.
Please pack drinks and a lunch which we will either eat on the trail or back in the base camp picnic grounds depending how fast we hike.
