This lake is so wonderful. On a good day at Lake Alpine you can take a hike along the Emigrant Trail; you can never get enough of the great skiing at Kirkwood. But wait, there's more to do near Lake Alpine. During a winter visit to Lake Alpine you could also stop by Bear Valley Snowmobile and rent a snow mobile. If you need a spot to stay The Meadow by Kirkwood Resort is a nice choice, and one of the main features
of the surroundings of Lake Alpine is Osborn Hill. Stanislaus National Forest is a splendid place, and needless to say Silver Creek flows through this vicinity.
