Old Timberline and Sidings Rail Trails

Natural Attractions

The 22 kilometre, Old Timberline Trail, located near Nannup, south of Perth, Western Australia, is a two day walk or one day cycle with an overnight hut on the bend of St John Brook. This scenic trail ranges from a windy walk trail to old timber roads.

Originally a road and rail line used to remove logs from the jarrah forest, today the trail is utilised by walkers and mountain bike riders. Unlike other rail trails it’s hilly in sections and becomes narrow in many places, providing a scenic challenge.

Beginning at either end, the trail runs from the rail bridge (over the Blackwood River) in Nannup to Cambray Siding – the intersection of the Sidings Rail Trail (combine these two trails for a 37 kilometre ride).

The Old Timberline Trail follows St John Brook Creek and passes many beautiful locations. Sleeper Hewers Camp, sleeping a maximum of eight people, is situated near one of these settings, whilst there are two car accessible swimming sites – Barrabup Pool and Workman’s Pool.

The moderate Top Trail features interpretation on the old timberline heritage, beautiful flora and fauna and spectacular views to the bends in St John Brook from Sleeper Hewer’s Camp.
