New England has a long, beautiful coastline that contrasts from the scenic beaches of Cape Cod to the drama of the rocky Maine coast. Of course, the West Coast offers more high drama in the cliffs of Big Sur and Northern California, and the stone outcroppings of the Oregon coast. But they lack the character and charm of New England's... More

Make sure you have non-slip or stable shoes and plenty of time. I love running and walking the Cliff Walk. The scenery is beautiful in every direction, whether looking out at the bay or at the homes.

Located right behind the great mansions on Bellevue Ave the Cliff Walk is one of Newport's greatest treasures. 2.5 miles on way you will see the mansions up close.

We were lucky enough to have fairly mild weather so that we were able to walk along the Cliff Walk each morning of our visit to Newport. What beautiful views!

Walking the Cliff Walk is one of the "must do" things if visiting Newport. You get some great views of the ocean and the fancy homes along the waterfront. Wear good walking shoes and water, especially in the summer.

You can access the cliff walk at multiple points. It is nice to cover it from end to end but don't be intimidated by it's length. Also, you can exit/enter at points where the RIPTA trolley/buses stop.
