North Dorset Trailway

The North Dorset Trailway is a walking, cycling and horse riding route from Sturminster Newton to Spetisbury. The trailway is part of a larger scheme to provide an off-road sustainable route through Somerset and Dorset following the disused Somerset and Dorset railway line. For walkers, there are links to the Stour Valley Way, The Wessex Ridgeway, The Jubilee Trail, and Hod and Hambledon Hills. Open Access land and nature reserves and woods such as Piddles Wood and Blandford Forest are within easy walking distance of the Trailway.

For cyclists, the Trailway provides a link to many rural roads, which allows cycling for miles, virtually traffic free, whilst enjoying the Dorset countryside.

For horse riders, the Trailway is proving to be a great asset to riders in and around the route.
