I've known of the Railway Trail for years, but this is the first time I've actually taken the time to hike some of it. What a great addition to Bermuda this is! This is really a great way to experience some of the off-the-beaten-path places and culture of Bermuda. We hiked basically from Gibb's Hill Lighthouse to Somerset Village. We were told that would be about 7-9 miles. The path is sometimes dirt and some paved. Bikes are allowed. What is nice is that you see lots of nice homes along the way along with some of the small farms. The flora and fauna that lines much of the path is outstanding. It has many areas to view and walk down to the waters edge. There are some benches for resting placed sporadically along the path. The path in many areas is a major cut through the limestone, which is interesting to see the layers and structure. Other areas are flora covered tunnels that are bristling with flowers and bird life. Beautiful!
This is one attraction that should not be missed. It works especially well for those windy days when the beach is not the best, but the weather is still sunny and nice. A nice pair of hiking sandals or tennis shoes are all you need.
