We did this walk on the last day of a 2 day trip to Newport. This walk is absolutely amazing. Easton beach is below and you will have amazing views of the ocean. The walk is well paved and groomed. The only negative is the joggers that feel the need to run along with the walkers ! Still a must-do!

Cliff walk is arguably one of the most beautiful walk she can ever do in Newport. The 1st mile and a half you can walk there are stairs so strollers will be an issue however caring them up and down the stairs isn't all that cumbersome. If you have older teens you can actually go to the end of the... More

We have a 20 month old son- we parked by Easton beach and just took a short stroll right by the beach. The area was well paved and had no problem with our stroller. We didn't go very far but enough to see the beautiful beach some houses and get some pictures!

A MUST if you travel to Newport. Parking is a problem, but the trouble is well worth it. Not good on a very warm day for seniors but with a cool breeze, the scenery and ocean views are well worth it for all ages.

If you come to Newport, you have to do this walk. You have beautiful views of the bay as well as the magnificent old houses that litter the foreshore here

We came here with our three young children and had a fabulous day. We walked at first, then when we got to the rocky areas let the kids go hog wild climbing all over them--which they loved. It was fun to watch the waves crash on one side and admire the mansions on the other. The houses are just absolutely... More

We walked this on a HOT summer day in Newport. It was still beautiful and we were glad we did it. There are a few shady spots along the way to give you a break from the sun. The homes along the way are beautiful!!! But, on the way there, we wondered if we would have an ocean breeze along... More

A relaxing walk (wear sneakers at least) with beautiful view of the ocean, gardens, mansions and lots of fresh air

We parked on the street where the 40 steps are located. We walked about 1 mile total. The view was wonderful with the waves crashing against the rocks on one side, and the beautiful mansions on the other. Many were on the paved trail jogging and walking, and I can see why this would be a great place to exercise... More
