There is a Strava segment for the 7.7 mile ascent.  But note that Strava can report times that are off by many seconds, so it is best to report your actual time here.

Loop:  27 mi / Vertical Gain 5795 ft .  Start from Santiago Truck Trail then merge into Joplin Trail toward the summit. Then decent using Main Divide trail going west then decent using Harding truck trail . The last 2 miles-ish to complete the Loop is on road.  Or you may run the loop in the opposite direction.
