There have been some recent trails approved that would change the map. Work on trail maps and the trail master plan are currently underway as part of a general plan update.

Cemetery Hill

This is a perfect hike for children. Hike the sand and clay knoll originally called Flag Hill or Signal Hill. Take a copy of Alpine Yesterdays for a guide. Edmond Nelson, born in 1799, was the first to be buried on top of Cemetery Hill.  He died on December 15, 1850.

City Affairs

A trail guide for Alpine City hikes is not available. Help for trail development is needed. As part of the general plan update, Mr. Bond would like to name trails and establish trail heads, trail signage, and rules. A marketing campaign could get people informed about the trails in Alpine City. Some trails may be substantially improved and others remain in their current state. People who know, use, and care about the trails could take ownership and participate in volunteer projects to improve or maintain them.
