I enjoyed the seascapes on the Ocean View Trail, a lovely place to walk off some our our breakfast on a sunny morning.

“Quiet solitude”
Reviewed August 22, 2012

Sachuest Point is one place I always try to get to while visiting Newport. It's an oasis from all the hustle and bustle associated with Newport in the summer. There's some great trails that provide beautiful panoramic views of the coastline.

“What a find!”
Reviewed August 13, 2012 via mobile

This is a wonderful place to hike, run, stroll, or take children. It is an easy and breezy walk with marvelous views and few bugs! Lookout points make it easy to bird watch, and there are several shoreline accesses to explore or fish. Looking forward to going back!

“The best place in the area”
Reviewed August 8, 2012

Sachuest has the best trail that loops around the ocean then a quieter side if you go the whole way. I've seen Minks here, deer, fox, gold finch, osprey, rabbits, snakes, hawks, etc. TONS of wildlife, great views and really nice volunteers that are very knowledgeable inside the building,
