A great use for a redundant railway, providing a foot/cycle/horseback route across most of the island. Well signed and easily accessible over much of its length. Marred slightly in some unsightly fly-tipping, but generally well maintained.

In 2015, volunteers fixed up the most scenic 3-mile stretch of Bermuda's main walking trail (called the "Railway Trail" because it used to have a railroad tracks on it) from Coney Island (near the Swizzle Inn) to Shelly Bay. Since the upgrade, I would rate this walk as one of Bermuda's tourist highlights. Bring a camera, as you will be... More

You'll need to research this trail before you arrive--not many specifics were available for the self-guided tourist and there were precious few signs along the way, but we figured out the stretch we wanted to explore from studying maps and seeing where the trail neared the shore. Much of it goes through the jungle/woods, but there were a couple of... More

If you're active, one issue you might encounter in Bermuda is a complete dearth of sidewalks on which to safely run. Instead you'll find yourself running against traffic on narrow, winding roads that have the ocean on on side and a rocky cliff on the other. The Railway Trail is a great way to escape this potential death trap and... More

This tour has it all. Water, biking, hiking and history. Loved it all. Brad and Trevor were amazing tour guides. Full of knowledge. Friendly and safety oriented. This was the highlight of our time in Bermuda.

Not well promoted, the trail has an interesting history which is well explained on signs at the St. George end of the trail, but given some of the narrow sidewalks in the village itself, the trail provides a good opportunity to see another aspect of the island while enjoying a fascinating walk.

A hidden treasure in Bermuda! This used to be an old railway track and is now a great sand/rock trail which stretches 21 miles along the island. Much of the trail is shaded with trees and has off shoots like a trail to Gibbs Lighthouse. The views are spectacular. In some places it is becoming overgrown but still worth the... More

This trail is accessible and lovely to walk along the coast of the island. You will find some garbage from others who use the trail but this is not a shock nor does it detract from the lovely trail and view as you walk. The trail is not very covered with shade though so I would recommend you use sunblock... More

We work on board a cruise ship that docked in Dockyard a few times a month so we had a few opportunities to ride this trail. From Dockyard its about 15-20 minutes of cycling to find the trail (turn left at the police station). The first time we did this we got quite lost at several points where it seemed... More

Some areas of the railway trail are awesome and are great places to get nice pictures of the island! However the central part of the trail as well as other places have grass and trees growing everywhere, blocking the trail and making it both unaesthetic and unusable. When other cyclists or people are coming down the trail you have to... More
