We ran the 3.5 miles - be careful through the rough terrain, but don't let the warnings scare you off. Go to the end, enjoy the outdoors. I purchased the Preservation Society map to get additional information about the area.

Lovely views! Nice way to start the day after breakfast and get rid of the cobwebs, :) Would be great if the walk was extended longer

This was our 4th time in Newport and every time we go there we must do the cliff walk. The views are breathtaking. Don't miss out on this "free" adventure.

Personally, I found the Cliff Walk to be a lot more scenic the Ocean Drive. You get amazing views of the ocean and pass a lot of mansions. You get so enthralled by the view that by the time you get to the end, you can't believe that you've walked 3.5 miles. Most of the walk is paved with concrete.... More

If the weather is good, this is a must do thing while in Newport and it's free! Bundle up and don't miss this backyard view of the mansions.
