Hoofing Along History

In 1931, the 22-mile-long Bermuda Railway opened for service, meant to provide a means of transportation that wouldn't be as disruptive as automobiles. (Cars at the time were actually banned on the island in an effort to maintain the peace, quiet, and slow pace that drew tourists and their dollars to Bermuda). But the railway never turned a profit and shut down by the late 1940s.

Decades later, the government turned most of the abandoned route into a multiuse public trail--one of the very best ways to see the island. Some 18 miles offer hikers and bicyclists the opportunity to soak up Bermudan countryside along almost the full length of the island as they follow the ghost path of the well-intentioned and short-lived railroad.
