A beautiful 3 mile walk through abundant wildflowers and shrubbery, lots of ocean views, and a great rocky shore. Many songbirds, shorebirds, and the occasional deer. A wonderful walk. Visitors center is also interesting.

This is the best deal in the Newport/ Middletown area. Walk the beautiful Oceanside trails and visit the museum. Great for all ages.

The visitors center itself is...fine. Some information about local wildlife, not a whole lot to see. The staff is very friendly and helpful, and the views are spectacular. There are also a couple of trails to walk.

My husband and I visited last weekend for a walk along the water and to view the sunset. We love to come here and always see a plethora of birds, flowers and sometimes deer along with lovely 380 degree views of the ocean. On our walk this time we saw a deer grazing in the marsh. We brought lawn chairs... More

We recently hiked the three-mile loop at Sachuset Point and liked it so much that we came back on another day to do it again. It's a very well-maintained refuge, and the trails are relatively flat and easy -- perfect for a relaxed constitutional while walking by the shore. There's lots of nice scenery along the way, too -- shore... More

This was a great 2 mile walk with beautiful views. We had a jogging stroller and had no issues. There is free parking (as long as beach goers don't break the rules). My only complaint is that dogs aren't allowed- our dog would have loved it! Bring a camera!

We've been coming to Newport for 18 years and this was our first trip to Sachuest. It's a quick 10 minute drive from Newport. At the refuge there are walking trails that hug the coastline. Very scenic and relaxing. There are a lot of different type birds you can see and also deer (which we did not see). After the... More

Great place to walk and chill. We visit quite often and yet the ocean will always give you something different to see. We like to go off path and walk down to the rocks, a great natural core exercise as you balance yourself traversing the large glacial boulders that formed the peninsula. It's enjoyable in all seasons and in the... More

The best hiking, scenery and coastline in the Newport region! Brought the surfcaster but there was a strong north east wind and fishing mid-day isn't conducive to stripers either. This is our 3rd-4th visit here during different seasons. Lots of spear fishermen also so that may contribute to the scarcity of fish. The area is also a geologists dream as... More
