“Nice trail for walking or jogging”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

This trail follows the old railway (hence the clever name) and is a nice way to see some off-the-road sights. Be warned, it does break up and cross main roads in some spots, and it requires keeping a sharp eye on the ground, but worth checking out for walking or (in the right season) running.

“Solitude in Bermuda”
Reviewed July 7, 2013

Our family of 5 (including 3 children ages 6 - 12 years) walked a stretch of about 4 miles (Somerset to the edge of Sandy's Parish) and thoroughly enjoyed the beautiful water views, solitude and outdoor experience of this wonderful "trail". Virtually the entire stretch we walked was paved, but it often cuts through the Bermudan "wilderness" so you hear the sounds of birds, water splashing against the shore, and the general sounds of nature. There are sections that meander through residential neighborhoods, but even these sections were generally quiet and well-suited for walking. We are looking forward to our next trip to Bermuda to pick up the trail where we left off. We highly recommend a walk through the Railway Trail.

“hidden gem in bermuda”
Reviewed July 1, 2013

if you like to be walk and be outdoors, you will like this trail. it is a great alternative to the beach and much of the trail is shaded. on the western end, there are neighborhoods, parks, small beaches and forts to keep it interesting. you will pass through villages. when you get tired you can walk to main road and hop on a bus. bring a good map, water, and shoes. it can also be done on a pedal bicycle.

“Some spots lack direction/signs”
Reviewed June 20, 2013

We enjoyed walking on various points of the Railway trail but there are some parts of it that are not well marked and some seem very isolated.

“Waterlot to Barnes Corner return via Gibbs Hill Lighthouse”
Reviewed June 9, 2013

It has been more than 10 years since I last hiked on the Bermuda Railway Trail. It was a great way to spend a couple of hours. The Trail itself is flat and provides some great views of the Little Sound. I walked down from the Fairmont Southampton, but you could take the hotel's shuttle to the Waterlot. The Trail goes east and west from there. I went west. AS others have noted, it is not safe to walk on the Bermuda roads. The trail is best.

On the reurn I followed the signs to the Gibbs Hill Lighthouse. The trail up is short (a bit over 0.5 miiles), but quite steep. The view from the top made it worthwhile.

I followed Lighthouse Road back to the hotel. Traffic was very light.
