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 is hilly in sections and becomes narrow in many places, proving challenging, but very scenic. The 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.

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 8 people, is situated near one of these settings. Other car access points to the trail are from Barrabup Pool and Workman's Pool (where there are swimming holes, toilets and picnic areas) and Cambray Siding (the road into Cambray is narrow and may not be passable by 2WD vehicles after wet weather). Workman's Pool also has facilities for car camping.
