It is a killer hill when you don't do it often. If you get into the habit a few times a week it becomes relatively easy!

Very close to the trails, nice parks and it is quiet because there is not so much through traffic.
Yeah, I meant Foothills more than Tramway really. I'd say go a few blocks west of Tramway and everything east of it.
(for the most part anyway)

I think I am just going to have to settle for taking your word for it

I do see several people jogging up and down the hill or walking their dogs, I even see people riding their bicycles up it!!

Does the Four Hills area get airport noise? On Google Earth, Four Hills looks as if it's directly in a departure/approach flight path.

Yes you gets some aircraft noise when you are outside. One of the approaches comes across the southern most part of Four Hills across the northern border of the base and west onto the runway. However, having said that there are two other approaches into the not so busy airport, one from the south and one from the west.

We also get the odd military helicopter and fighter jet flying across the Four Hills just south of us. We also see the big carrier planes come in but they usually come in from the south.

I dont ever notice the noise, but I do like seeing a SW Airlines place banking for its final approach thru my picture windows.
