This should definitely be on your list of to-dos during your trip to Block Island. There's a warning at the top of the steps that dictate the steep steps, but you see all the little kids and families do it. It's definitely steep, and the steps stop about 30-40 feet to the beach, and you end up climbing down the rocks with a piece of flimsy rope as your "handle". The view is worth it though. Lots of clay around the rocks and water, you end up giving yourself a natural spa treatment.
