Joplin, one of OC's most challenging descents, is quite steep and rocky (well worth the climb though!). Expect nearly 12 miles of fire road climbing before the Joplin singletrack. Upon reaching the bottom of Joplin you'll end up at Old Camp. After a brief climb you will reach the Old Camp clearing to begin the final (and longest) descent down Santiago Truck Trail to conclude the loop.
