It was a great walk although we didn't do the entire route. Much of it is paved but some areas require walking over boulders.

You can start and stop anywhere you like. This free walk will take you on a high cliff along the ocean and gives you a view of the great houses from their rear. It is mostly flat and easy to walk. Oh, that wonderful sound of the ocean lapping the shore and the breezes coming in off the Atlantic! Just... More

Follow the trail along the cliffs with beautiful mansion views. This is a unique, distinguishable feature of Newport. I loved to start my day with that memorable "hike".

Bring your walking shoes. I try to walk the entire 3.5 miles every time I go to Newport. Salve Regina and the mansions are dotted along the shoreline. It is so beautiful. Not to be missed.

Since 2001 we've been going to Newport and never miss a chance to walk here. The view out over the ocean is so breathtaking. Depending on which part you walk or how far, you can look into the yards of some spectacular mansions. A lot of people do it so it is appealing to most.

This is an easy walk with several parking areas along the path. The walkway consists of pavement, gravel and flat boulders. The boulders can be a problem with dogs because of the cracks between them. You walk between views of the ocean and mansions with manicured lawns. A great place to do your morning walk.

Loved this walk, bring your sneakers since there are some flat rocks to cross. We enjoyed the exercise and views.

We walked the Cliff Walk late in the day when it was very chilly, but enjoyed the beautiful views of the homes and ocean. Easy to navigate and well marked. Lots of runners .. wish we had been able to do the entire walk, needed warmer jackets!

Accessed at behind the Admin building at Salve Regina University. Walk around the campus while you're there - beautiful! This area of the walk is easy.
