The Hidalgo Cemetery Trail connects the Rotary Furnace (a mining equipment relic on display inside the park) with the Almaden Road parking lot. It travels past the Hidalgo Cemetery site. There is a fairly hard climb (or descent) involved on the trail.

This trail technically only travels from the Rotary Furnace down to the cemetery and no farther (according to the park map) but there is a trail below the cemetery connecting the parking lot.

Access Info

Although the trail connects to the Almaden Road entrance to the park, the technical start is at the Rotary Furnace.

Disclaimer

Trail runs through land that may not be sanctioned for bike access.
