New Almaden, California got its name from the Almaden Quicksilver Mines, but the Almaden mine that it was named after wasn't in California. It wasn't even in America. It was named after the mines in Spain. It is their job to process the mercury so that the ore can be usable. Now, New Almaden is a family community that loves its pets; just stop into any of the three vets and you'll see that for yourself!

Almaden Quicksilver Park is one of the best places you can take your family. Bring a leash and explore the trails around the reservoir. You can even fish in this man-made lake. However, you should practice some important safety measures: don't let your dog off his leash, don't eat anything you catch, and don't let your dog drink the water. This is a natural spot for mercury. It is found in all the water and the fish. The reservoir is beautiful and has a ton of historic sites that highlight the mining history of the area. You will love spending the day here!

For more history, or to see an actual mine, head over to Almaden Lake Park. It is located right outside of New Almaden. There is no fishing allowed here at all, though. You can walk the trail with your dog on his leash. The best part is that, if you go up the hill, you can see the actual mines. You cannot go in them, but there are mine cars on display and you can see the tracks. 

There aren't many more Fido-friendly amenities in this town, so if you're looking for dog parks and restaurants, you'll have to take a short drive to the surrounding areas.

    New Almaden doesn't have any dog parks of its own, but you'll find Butcher Dog Park is the perfect place for some mutts-needed exercise. It is only about 12 miles from New Almaden.

The water fountains are clean and there are always water bowls available. You'll also have access to poop bags at the cleaning stations, and the trash cans are cleaned regularly at this well-maintained park. You don't have to bring anything but your sense of adventure!

    One of the best thing about being in New Almaden is that you have access to a beautiful mountain trail system just 15 miles from you. Fremont Older Open Space Preserve is just that. This is an open trail system that allows you to choose how long you want to hike. The downside to this magnificent nature space is that you will have no access to running water. You will need to bring your own supplies, including poop bags. Please remember that you have to keep your dog on a leash. All of the trails are clearly marked so that you and your dog can explore safely.

    Right in the middle of Saratoga, and only about 20 minutes from you, is an interesting restaurant called La Fondue. If you like cheese, chocolate, and decadence, then you need to bring your dog here! They have a four-course tasting menu that will have you full and happy. It isn't all about just cheese, though. They have exotic meats to choose from as well. They even have kangaroo on the menu! Your pup can join you to eat here, but if you want them to get food or water, you will have to bring your own dishes.
