Although smaller, Alpine is notorious for being one of the more prominent, beautiful, nice areas in the entire valley. With its elevated views, the city’s beauty has been compared to that of the Swiss Alps. And with home appreciation up 12.6% in the last year, it is a great time to purchase a new home here.
If you enjoy the outdoors, Alpine has many trails that lead to breathtaking views, scenery, and waterfalls. Lambert Park hosts a plethora of trails for horseback riding, hiking, and mountain biking, as well as waterfall pools and the best views of Utah county.
