    Cliff Walk

    The manmade draws a distinct line between what mother nature built along these shores. The cliff walk hovers along the space where water meets land and traces the coastline straight down to a stretch of a open beach of sand. Many Newporter's were taking advantage of waters and hauling out like seals, they would swim to rock portrusions to sit in accomplishment. Heave the glory of "MISSION COMPLETE".

    Address: Newport, Rhode Island

    Cliff Walk

    If you come to Newport one thing you must do is check out the Cliff Walk. It sits just above 1st 'Eastons' Beach. It's a 4.5 mile path that runs along side the ocean. On the other side is the Newport Mansions. The view to either side is impressive. About half of the path is paved while the other half is more dirt and large rocks. Depending on what you're looking for in a hike, you can find either here. There are also several enterances you can access the cliff walk from, so if you don't what to do it all in one day, it could be broken into several stretches.

    Address: The easiest access is from Memorial Blvd.

    Directions: This is just above 1st 'Eastons' beach. It lies between the beach and downtown Newport. It follows the SW coast of the island.
