Swamp Donkey XC Loop is an easy cross country loop at the bottom of Mt Hutt Bike Park. Easy enough for kids to ride but still a nice warm up ride for more experienced riders. Most riders use this to start their climb to the tracks higher up.

Access Info

Swamp Donkey starts and ends at the bottom carpark where the tarmac turns into a shingle road, just ride on past the map.
