Today was Easter, and we had the opportunity to take a short walk that celebrated the Resurrection. Remember the Alpine Living Nativity? On that same property there is a short video and a self-guided walk that takes you through scenes from the New Testament. The Alpine Easter Walk will only take your family about 20 minutes, but the reverent atmosphere helps bring a special feeling to the season.
They recommend you watch this video before attending since they won’t be showing it this year: My Kingdom is Not of this World.
The Alpine Easter walk begins with a small altar next to a few lambs in a pen. A sign talked a bit about the law of Moses, and how lambs were sacrificed, which opened up some good conversation with our kids.
Behind the altar and the lambs stood three huge crosses. There was no ornamentation or any sort of details, just three rugged crosses, but they did stir some feelings in our little group. There was a scripture next to each Easter symbol you visited.
The final scene is located just up the hill. There is a replica of the tomb with a large stone rolled away. Small groups can enter the tomb and find that it is empty. We really loved this visual on a beautiful Easter afternoon. It brought alive the story that we’ve told to our kids so many times.
The Alpine Easter Walk is open April 7-April 10, 2023 from 10 am-dusk. You can walk through any time during those hours. Located at the corner of Eastview Lane and Watkins Circle in Alpine. The official address is WATKINS’ FARM at 410 E Watkins Circle in Alpine, Utah.
To find the Alpine Easter Walk, make your way to Alpine via the Timpanogos Highway or 100 E in American Fork. Head north on 5300 W in Highland toward Alpine, continue north through the round about. This road becomes Alpine Main Street and then continues up the hill and becomes Heritage Hills Drive. Watch for Eastview Ln. Park on the road and walk to the Alpine Easter Walk. Here is a map to help you find your way.
