About This Trail

[Total: 0    Average: 0/5]

The Alpine Poppy Field is a MUST SEE treasure in Lambert Park, Alpine, UT. The Poppies are in bloom between May and early June. This hike is not marked and not the easiest to find, you can find a map to the field HERE or in the gallery(Map photo thanks to The House That Lars Built).

From the LDS church, walk east out of the parking lot and then take an immediate left on the dirt road, you’ll then see the Trailhead sign. Follow that trail up to the larger dirt road and take it until you get to a Y in the trail you can continue  on the larger Trail north up and around to the field or you can go right diagonally up to the field. This trail has some shade where the road does not.

You’ll know you’ve arrived when you see the old brick building wall and teepee made out of sticks.

I’m Joey Johnson Branch Ambassador for Utah County. I’m happily married to Jory for 21 years and Proud Mama of two, Jack who would’ve been 12 and our rainbow baby, Jiraiya Dragon who is nearly 5. We’re from Utah but have lived in Arizona for 10 years and then New Zealand before returning to our roots when Jiraiya shocked us with his arrival.

We started hiking with Hike it Baby in May 2015 when I struggled to find a playgroup that we fit in. Within two months I became a BA for SLC but after all the driving back and forth from Provo I decided it was time to create HIB Utah County. The first 6 months was mostly just me and a friend but then they started joining us! Now we have an amazing group of regulars and we continue to get new faces all the time! I’m currently hosting twice weekly “Hike and Play Nature School”, my version or Forest Preschool but leans more towards unschooling, as it simply consists of Hiking and Free Play while parents try to stay as hands off as possible.

As my son ages out of HIB, I’m hoping to guide our branch back to it’s roots with getting Mamas and Babies out while offering hikes for families with school aged kids as well.
