In 1912, the tramway linked the sawmill supplying timber sleepers for the construction of the Transcontinental Railway, to Manjimup. The Deanmill settlement was named after the mill's first manager, Mr Alfred Dean. Having closed as an operating tramway in 1966, the reserve has been allowed to regrow and forms a major green corridor on the western side of Manjimup. 

Trail is rated "Easy" but beware of traffic and other trail users.
