Wonderful way to walk off post thanksgiving calories. Did a leisurely stroll on a balmy fall day where we took in the views of the water and the houses. Absolutely beautiful and manageable for all ages. Can’t wait to return

Beautiful place to walk. We happened to go when it was windy and rainy but still memorable. We walked for about two hours round trip. Lots of places to stop and take in the view. Photo opportunities everywhere!

As it’s the slow season the parking is all free. The walk itself is very pleasant and not really too hard. Found that none of the amenities are open this time of year in Newport.

If you go past breakers, up the road a little is a turn off with parking. There’s nice views there. Also, along ocean drive on the way up toward the mansions; it’s beautiful!!
