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...

Tree across trail near bottom switchbacks. Been there long enough people are making a trail around it as somewhat hard to stop for it. Near rock feature section. Couldn’t get it with my small hand saw. reporter
