I know you took your time on this one and it shows, especially your Route Description write-up. After reading this page I'm more inclined to give this one a shot. For some reason I'm liking this one as an all day affair. I have been looking for a one day trip that would challenge my fitness level and this one seems perfect. There doesn't seem to be much off trail hiking so routefinding decisions shouldn't take too much time. That Pine Creek area also looks very pristine, especially the upper reaches.
Thanks for the corrections and the compliments. I still have a ways to go to reach the quality of your pages. I think Silver King would make a good day hike for someone looking for a good long workout, Almost no routefinding and good trails.
