Aside from the south shore beaches, the traffic on its narrow roads make it hard to find a safe place to take a long walk in Bermuda. So last week we took the #8 bus from the Dockyard to the intersection of Lighthouse Road and Middle Road. A few yards from there we got on the Railway Trail at the start of its longest continuous section. There are a few hills where I guess trestles have been removed, and a few paved sections on which an occasional car passes, but generally the trail is flat, unpaved, and only for walkers and bikes. This is a beautiful trail - not for the vistas but for the trees, flowers, wild fruits (loquat and pitanga), the backyard views of a side of Bermuda that most tourists never see. Much of the trail is cut trough solid limestone and overhung with exuberant semitropical trees. From the trail's end near Hamilton we walked into town, the narrow sidewalks and heavy traffic reminding us how special a place we had found.
