Another Side of Bermuda

Among the newer additions to Bermuda's national-park system, Hog Bay Park protects a 30-odd-acre swath of jungly woods, lush fields, and plunging coastline in Sandy's Parish. Secluded paths weave through fiddlewood and palmettos, pass a historic lime kiln, and skirt farms cultivated for centuries.

Reaching the brushy seaside slopes, you'll glimpse bleached snags of Bermuda junipers ("Bermuda cedars"): victims of the introduced scale blight that nearly wiped this endemic species out. You'll also see young junipers in the park that have been planted. Birdwatchers can go nuts here, meanwhile; from orioles and warblers to rough-legged hawks and merlins, the avifauna's rich in this precious refuge of undeveloped land.
