Had a wonderful experience out on these two trails as an overnighter. Slept at the clean and well maintained Sleeper Hewer’s Hut after a highly enjoyable cruise along the Timberline Trail. The next morning we rode up to Jarrahwood for lunch at the hut there, then returned to Nannup mid-afternoon. Didn’t see another soul and were very impressed with the track quality. Only tricky bit was finding the Timberline Trail a couple of times at the start. Would not reccommended doing it in reverse unless you want a leg workout.
Jarrahwood to Nannup, travelling along the Siding trail and then the Old Timberline Trail. This is a wonderfully long trail in the bush with a generally easy gardient, only one steep climb in this direction. Jarrahwood to Cambray Siding is downhill and very enjoyable passing over bridges. Plenty of wildflowers around the place. Remnants of the old railwayare visible. When we rolled onto the Old Timberline Rail trail we entered St John Brook Conservation park and followed alongside a flowing creek. The jarrah trees are taller in the area. Great picnic spot at Barrabup pool. Very scenic around this spot. From Barrabup pool there is a nice singletrack. From workers pool to Nannup there are quite a few trees fallen over which I'm sure will be taken care of in the coming weeks. A few large puddles and sandy patches but nothing too hard. Markers are sufficient but be sure to bring a map or GPS. Fantastic trail with lots of options to camp along the way or complete a loop starting and finishing at Nannup. Highly recommend overnighting in Nannup to really enjoy the area and start the trail early so you can have lunch in town.
