If you like lots of climbing over long distances with miles of technical, singletrack descending thrown in, then this is the route for you. You begin with a leg burning climb to Modjeska Peak, followed by a technical run down the ever daunting Joplin before you climb out of Old Camp and head down Santiago Truck trail and over to Harding for one last leg burner before heading back down Maple Springs. CAUTION: Maple Springs can have significant off-road vehicle traffic so watch your speed and take care when descending.

01/22/06 Another leg burner with lots of elevation and some great descending down Joplin & Santiago. Rode with Koke who's an animal considering he's only been riding a couple of months. Very cold much of the way also, avg. temp of 55 with a low of 36! Brrrrrr.
