Named after our Local Coffee Roasting company, Steam Donkey, this is a great cross country circuit with lots of doable, but hard climbs. Great views at the Mountain Mine Viewpoint and top of Magic Line Climbs. Takes about 2 hours.

A beautiful day on the trails in Kimberley. I wish I had more time on this trail. Looks like it could get more and more fun as you get comfortable...
