60 Hikes in 60 Miles in 60 Weeks: Week Fifty-five
Almaden Quicksilver County Park
Maples leaves, ready to crunch through at Almaden Quicksilver County Park

What it's like:
7.6 miles through grassland and mixed woods south of San Jose. Former mine site.

Why now:
Happy autumn! Get in the seasonal spirit at AQ, where bigleaf maples are tossing their leaves onto the trails.

If you can't make it this week:
Highly recommended for spring, when there are extravagant displays of wildflowers.

Insider tip:
This time of year substitute Deep Gulch Trail for English Camp -- this alternate is almost totally shaded.

Almaden Quicksilver is hike number 36 in 60 Hikes in 60 Miles: San Francisco (third edition)Read about this hike on BAHiker.

Alternate choice:
Explore a different side of Mount Tam from a small trailhead in Mill Valley. This lovely 6.6 mile loop climbs through chaparral, partially following the old railroad grade that used to chug to the top of the mountain. The return route is a mix of sun and shade, and offers outstanding views.

WOW! So a peaceful place, I would love to visit this place. I Would say it is one of the best places to use as a running track as I want to such kinds of a peaceful environment which help me to fresh my mind as I need it most because I'm a writer at Thesis Help in Pakistan so I have to work 9 to 5 there. So therefore I need to relax my mind my body because it helps me to work efficiently and effectively.

تسرب المياه

تعتبر مشكلة تسرّب المياه من المشاكل التي تؤرق الأفراد بشكل كبير؛ وذلك لما تُلحقه من ضرر بالمباني والمنازل، لذلك لا بد من السعي الدؤوب للكشف عما إذا كان هناك تسريب مائي أم لا. ويُعرف تسريب المياه بأنّه خلل يطرأ على توصيلات المياه بمختلف أشكالها، سواء كان ذلك في مواسير الصرف أو أكواعها أو مختلف أجزاء مواسير المياه، ومنها: الحنفيات، والخزانات، والسخانات، فيتسبب ذلك الخلل بخروج المياه من المسار المحدد لها إلى محيط المواسير فتتجمع المياه بالقرب من الأماكن المحيطة بالتسريب كالأرضيات والجدران فتلحق الضرر بها نتيجة تفاعلها مع مواد البناء، وتآكل الحديد وتهالك الخرسانة، وبالتالي تفاقم المشاكل في حال التغاضي عن علاجها.
