We walked the whole of the cliff walk and it is a great walk with ocean views and a look at how the other half used to live with the great mansions. The whole walk is a bit of a trek ( maybe 90 plus minutes with photo stops), and the last half is a bit of a rough track,... More

The walk is great. The length and view is the best. There is so much to see on the walk. I go every so often and want to do it again soon.

Grab a cup of coffee and enjoy the view! My mom and I started at Forty Steps and ended at Ruggle Avenue. My mom has knee problems and this was an easy walk for her. Beautiful water view as well as backyard of mansions. Watch out for the metered parking. They work during busy season only.

Start from the beginning and walk up towards the grand old houses open to the public, the first of which is Breakers, a must see for its grandeur, tastefully done and a testament to a special period of American history.

If you need a romantic, exercise and breathtaking moments, this the way to go! It is absolutely one of the most beautiful places here in RI! If you need a quiet walk or mediation, head there early or late during the day! Enjoy a snack overlooking the water!

The Cliff walk is historic, romantic and a must see in Newport. It is very close to second beach and is beautiful. There is a staircase made of rock that you must check out, about 1/4 miles down the path.

Beautifully build walk with sometimes dramatic steep drops and always beautiful view on the ocean and Easton's Beach. The only reason this did not get an "excellent" rating is because of the poor signage. This would be very helpful given the numerous sites which would benefit from a better description.

Several people recommended this as a stop on our New England trip. The walk was pleasant and the views were ok.
