Nice Nature View

It is a good one and you can actually find free parking if you use the address pointed out by google. We saw crabs walking under water. It is a must go place if you visit Newport.

A nice walk to do at sunrise or sunset. Boring for our kids. I think the rate of fun depends on where you enter.

Cliff walk is an absolute treat! On one side you have beautiful vistas of ocean and rock cliffs. If there are waves you can catch the locals surfing what is supposed to be one of the best breaks on the east coast. Most of the walk is paved and safe but there are a few areas you have to climb...

I heard great things about this so this was a must on our trip. We did the entire thing which from memorial Boulevard to the beach on other side felt like 7 miles. Not the 3.5 they say. Not sure why but we didn't mind ! I would go back and do it again. You get an awesome view of... More

Swell place to wander and see and smell the sea ..... Can be tricky walking but no obligation to go that far ... It's how much you want and can walk or run .... The breeze is refreshing ....

A lovely easy walk that ends too soon. The side which leads towards town is for the beauty of the water and beyond. The other side is where you can get a glimpse of private residences and marvel at their size and beauty. A peaceful, relaxing walk that shouldn't be missed to truly see the overall beauty of Newporr.

We didn't walk the whole 3+ miles, just the paved part near the Breakers, but the views and cooling sea breeze were welcome on a hot July day. We read someone else's tip to park for free at the Breakers, but the lot was full. We were able to find some spots on a side street just a few blocks... More

The cliff walk is divided into sections to allow for easy strolling, difficult walking, serious hiking, or daredevil terrain following. The easiest part of the walk starts at Easton's Beach and is paved and fairly level for 7/10 mile to "Forty Steps" where there is a staircase down to the rocks along the shore and has, as you may have...

The Cliff Walk is a great way to see some of the Mansions from a different angle. The vistas of the ocean and surrounding properties are wonderful.
