Ocean cliffs on one side mansions ,on the other....what's not to like. We walked a couple of miles after breakfast, it was beautiful. A lot of areas are fairly narrow so the less people the better. We were there before 9:00 am so it was perfect.

We were recently in Newport. We hiked the Cliff Walk along the ocean. On one side you have beautiful ocean views of a rocky coast and on the other side you pass the back of a number of incredible mansions. There are makers with QR Code that you can use with your smart phone to tell you the story of... More

Cliff Walk is breathtaking and a beautiful walk along the shore. However, there is an area with rocks. I fell and got bruised pretty badly. Be very careful, but enjoy. I would go again, but would proceed with more caution.

This is a very scenic and fun walk. Much of the trail is easy for baby strollers as well. If you are lucky and get a good weather day, you will really enjoy it (it was low 70s and sunny when we went, which was amazing). Parking tip- it’s pretty difficult to find parking. There is some public street parking... More

The scenery from this walk is not to be missed. The glorious sea and rocks to one side and the mansions on the other. Go early in the morning to enjoy it in solitude.

The Cliff Walk is my all-time favorite place to walk and it offers wonderful views of the bay and the mansions. We like to take the 40 steps down to view the ocean close up and take great pictures. I've done this walk many times in the last many years and every time it's one of the most relaxing things... More

Up visiting friends for the Memorial Day weekend & this was one of the many places I checked out while here. My friend being from the area helped for sure. Working at the university, we were able to park there. I had recently read in the May/June issue of Yankee Magazine that The Cliff Walk was rated in Historic Highlight... More

We had a fun time along this walk. We saw a lot of the backs of homes. It is free and well worth the time and effort. Great ocean views too.
