Wright’s Field, just south of Alpine’s commercial district, is a refreshing bit of open space plunked down amid one of San Diego County’s faster growing communities. Alpine’s homegrown Back Country Land Trust has managed to purchase 230 acres of rolling grassland and oaks here so far. Although small in area compared to neighboring Cleveland National Forest lands, Wright’s Field preserve will likely become an important site for wildlife, rare plants, and local recreation in the years to come. Hikers are welcome to tramp around the site, which has seen much use by both hikers, mountain bikers, and equestrians in recent years. From Tavern Road, walk east along the private residential road bordering the school’s north-side fence. After 0.2 mile, you come to the entrance gate for Wright’s Field preserve.
