Beautiful views past Ruggles Avenue looking back on to the mansions. Very accessible for most of the walk. Many access points.

We only did the first part of this. The weather turned on us so we didn't get to the rough part. We very much enjoyed the views!

A great 3.5 miles (one way) trail along the ocean in front of the Newport mansions. The last part of the trail is a little sporty for running as it is not paved but still an easy path. You have to backtrack the same path...More

Went to Newport with 5 of my girlfriends this week and fell in the love with this city. The Cliff Walk was the highlight of the three day trip. The endless magical scenery is beyond words for me. It is a must for nature lovers....More
