Hill Challenge – Kitchen Creek

| 0

Event Details


It’s spring, and the beautiful roads of east San Diego are calling!  Starting in Pine Valley, we’ll begin with a 10-mile warmup before tackling the main climb that is Kitchen Creek: 11 miles of roughly paved forest road that wind up at Sunrise Highway. Don’t worry about jumping the two barriers – They keep most of the climb closed to traffic. After that, you have three options. Green vistas, here we come!
