How many hikes begin in your garage? Recent snow has me using the adjacent river valley to burn off some cookies and eggnog. The first trip I broke trail for the last part of the loop - on this trip many others had followed with dogs etc so it's no longer as "pristine" feeling, but you get the idea of the landscape. A little wilderness escape without having to drive anywhere. Pretty sweet.
