Nature walks. Different types of plant life and vegetation. Great place to enjoy the back area of Alpine. Always something different to see, courtesy of mother nature.

This was very hard to find and it took me two attempts. Not sure why a trail must be kept as such a secret? Not sure it was worth the pain and effort? This is flat, easy and a good way to get started with...More

I believe it is open for use from sunrise to sunset. the parking is usually on the street outside of the fence. there is no "lock" on the fence, just walk around it.
