Summary: The Frome Valley Trail is a long distance route in Dorset following the River Frome from Evershot to Dorchester. Starting at Evershot, the second highest village in Dorset, this walk meanders close to the river towards Poole Harbour. The walking route also passes through Chilfrome, Maiden Newton, Bradford Peverell, Charminster and Dorchester. The landscape and terrain is one of Chalk Downland, riverbank, water meadows, woodland fringe. The majority of the walking route follows the River Frome but there are some sections where diversions are in place in the eventuality of the river being in flood. The majority of the route is on hard surfaced tracks and the remainder within sunken lanes or on pastoral and arable fields. The trail is waymarked with an arrowhead disc. This has been designed to reflect the rich archaeological findings dating from the Bronze Age within the river valley.
