A must-do if you visit Newport, you can walk as much or as little of it as you want. Views of the ocean, views of many of the mansions and their grounds, the perfect way to get some fresh air (can be windy at times) and exercise. Camera and water warranted, if you are looking to end the day with... More

Ocean views, views of first beach and good photos possible of the Mansions of Newport. You can do part of the walk or the entire 5 mile loop. Really kind of a must see if you are visiting. I lived near there for several years and walked it regularly and was never bored! Saw a mink one time run on... More

This is a walk that everyone should experience, especially on a sunny day or on a stormy day. The view is spectacular and a very enjoyable walk and experience.

We loved cliff walk, we walked different parts 3 times while we were here. Most people walk where the 40 steps are which is wonderful as it is where the mansions are. I however loved the eastern most end the most. This part starts at the beach and is an unpaved walk that gives you lots of access to climbing... More

I can't say enough about this cliff walk. We had a gorgeous day for the walk, a bit windy but what would you expect along the ocean cliffs? The natural beauty of the place is stunning. A must see!

This is a great sight seeing walk. Make sure you wear comfortable walking shoes as its a long walk. The views of the water and mansions are unmatched.

The walk is a blessing to have in the town of Newport. It allows you to take in the beautiful view of the water and the back side of a lot of the mansions. It is great for power walking or running as it is well cared for. The only disappointing thing is it is not really a cliff that... More

My bf and I walked the Cliff Walk just a short distance because it was a little cold. What we saw was nice. I would like to go again when it would be warmer but probably would not like the crowds.
