Explore the Cliff Walk in Newport
Newport’s Cliff Walk is an extraordinary 3.5 mile journey through historic Newport. There’s something simply magical about this rocky stretch of Rhode Island’s coastline, even in the cold grasp of winter. The Cliff Walk has been a dedicated National Recreation Trail since 1975, and is one of the best ways to glimpse the famed Mansions of Newport up close. The 3.5 mile trail winds its way along the edge of these incredible properties, offering incomparable views of Gilded-Age mansions like The Breakers, Rosecliff, Beechwood, Marble House, and Rough Point.
Most people complete the entire Cliff Walk in 2-3 hours. It’s generally easy to navigate, with the exception of the last portion of the trail, which is a bit more rugged. There are several different access points along the Cliff Walk, including right below our Inn, making it easy to break the walk up into smaller ones if you want.
