good walking path with great views

We didn't go through the entire path but what we walked through we thoroughly enjoyed. Path is safe and accessible.

Spent most of the day on this journey. Parking at Easton Beach, was a good opportunity. Be prepared with comfort shoes. The views are like known, I have ever seen. Definitely worth the effort.

I did the Cliff Walk after spending some time on the beach. The views are great and sort of fun to watch people sunbathing on the rocks. It is a long walk so bring your walking shoes. You'll definitely get your steps in walking to and from the beach. You get to see the back of some of the mansions... More

We loved our Cliff Walk! There are parts of the walk that are flat, but there are others that can be quite rocky. Be warned if you are trying this with small children or those who are unsteady. Excellent pictures of the mansions, better pictures of nature's splendor.

Beautiful views from the cliff walk. Some beautiful paces to stop to take pictures. Once you get to the 40 steps its helpful to know there is no exit that you go to the end or turn around. Need to wear sneakers and beware of some very rocky areas

Unfortunately we were there during a heat wave so we didn't do the entire walk. The part we did walk was nice; although did not have the feeling of a cliff. It is something you must do and I did get some really nice pictures of the water and the mansions.

You can do this walk. Start at Easton beach and call orange cab when you reach ledge avenue and tell them to meet you at the end. Takes about 3 hours if you go real slow. Take water with you. You will love this walk. Go to cliff walk Newport website for a ton of info. Site divides walk into... More
