Thanks for the info, as always. By way of comparison, how do you rate Kitchen Creek pavement toward the top when it gets cratered? And how'd you rate this ride in terms of scenery/pleasure?

I don't know about the knee, but I have a torn hip labrum that's ended my serious running and squatting days. Luckily, it didn't cause me any problems for some pretty intense backpacking.
