Too close to noise for me, although I got a little lost and it was slushy as heck yesterday so it wasn't as enjoyable as I would have liked. Lost track of the trails in the snow even though they are well lit I ended up on 3 different routes but still made it back without a problem. Beautiful view and I only went a mile in!
