    How is the Joplin Trail

    I have never ridden Joplin. What is the ride like? Is it overgrown, hike-a-bike going up, addrenalin rush going down.

    I rode Harding to Santiago Peak for the first time a couple of weeks ago. I wanted to do Joplin, but since I was alone I decided to wait for another day.

    I rode El Moro to Top of The World via the Step Trail this Sunday. It was a blast even though I ran out of water. I ran into some hucking DH riders and invited myself to some of their daredevil stuff next weekend! OH yeah!

    Good job!

    Joplin should be on your to do list. It is less technical than the trail in your pictures. However it is like three or four miles and demanding all the way. I have not cleaned it yet but it is cleanable. Cant beat the scenery either. At the end of Joplin there is a short steep climb and then you bomb 8 miles down STT.

    I rode Joplin last weekend....its intense!!

    We rode up Harding all the way to Santiago Peak then down Jopling and down Santiago TT.

    I made a nice 28mile loop.

    Jopling is overgrown so cover your arms up.
    Technical sections come up fast so watch out...and that damn stream crossing really got me.

    Water came out of nowhere and i whacked my head on a tree branch.

    Otherwise it was fun as hell.

    Its just takes a lot of climbing to get there, but i like it!

    Heres pictures of the trip
