The improved part of the walk is easy going, great views of the bay and activity, Mansions are really not accessible for viewing. There are a couple spots where you can climb out onto the rocks and get up close to the water. I believe there is signage now indicating that the trail will become less defined and more difficult for those less able but think it could be more specific and
informative?having seen folk have to turn and go back dissapointed.

Hard to believe the opulence and construction--plus you can make this a five mile walk--but try to make it on a warm day--pretty breezy

There are some repairs going on so we couldn't complete the entire walk. Bring your camera. there are a lot of photo ops. The forty steps are a must to see. It's best to go on a clear day to really enjoy the views.

You get lots of good exercise if you walk the full Cliff Walk. Just don't try doing it with small kids as strollers not viable and there are spots that are tricky to navigate.

If you like a nice walk this is for you. Views of the ocean and many of the mansions. You can walk down the 40 Steps. See the renovated Japanese Tea House. If you know someone looking for a college Salve Regina College is on the walk. There are a couple of places on the walk can be tricky for small children and those that are not sure footed.
