We are so happy we found this place. We do the cliff walk when we go to Newport but we found this great place to hike. Amazing land, great views of nature and ocean. Relaxing hike. Lots of beautiful bright yellow birds. Great find.

We really enjoyed our walk near the ocean. Several paths near trees, bushes, etc. and ocean view on some, which were flat and easily walked side by side. Some birds and even a minx! We walked 6:30-7:30 and it was very pleasant. We did put on bug spray. We saw some mosquitoes, but not too many. Visitor's center closed 4pm.... More

Lovely walk along the ocean with lots of birds and animals. Bring bug spray and sunscreen. Trails are all fairly easy 1 to 2 miles in length and flat.

Sachuest Point National Wildlife Refuge is a place where can take a relaxing walk of about 1.5 miles and view the Atlantic Ocean. You can hear and see lots of birds, ducks, and other critters. The walk is not strenuous. One does need to be cautious about ticks and poison ivy, but the trails are wide and well groomed. There... More

There are lots of places in this area to walk along the shore, but Sachuest stands out. The ocean loop quickly takes you away from civilization, through grasslands and shrubs along an easy 1.5-mile path. The walk is almost entirely along the shore, and there are several designated access points where you can climb down form the path to the... More

Extensive trails through fields and along the shore provide maximum opportunity to see a wide variety of birds and the chance to see other wildlife. Fun to walk year-round. Flat and easy walking.

it's a great trail to for beginner run/walkers or just one who loves a bit of nature. You can bring the kids, grandparents, friends etc. and enjoy nice peaceful walk with a little and an amazing view of the ocean while enjoying a walk/run. I come in the early spring, winter, and summer we absolutely love it's so peaceful.
