Newport Cliff Walk

Tracing the perimeter of the southern edge of town, high above the crashing surf of the Atlantic Ocean, the Newport Cliff Walk fronts many of Newport’s famous Gilded Age mansions. The 3.5-mile (5.6 km) public walkway passes Astor’s Beechwood, Rosecliff, Marble House, The Breakers, Ochre Coure, and Rough Point, providing better views of these “cottages” then what can be scene from the street.

The long and winding walk is mostly paved and offers visitors not only stunning views of the mansions but also breathtaking vistas of the Atlantic Ocean and the surrounding shores, as well as dramatic sunsets. Parts of southern half of the trail are unpaved and ramble over the rocky shoreline.

Practical Info

The Newport Cliff Walk runs from the western end of Easton’s Beach to the eastern end of Bailey’s Beach. There are public access points at Ledge Road, Marine Avenue, Bellevue Avenue, Ruggles Avenue, Webster Street, Narragansett Avenue, and Sheppard Avenue. The entire walk takes about 2 to 3 hours. Be advised that there are no facilities along the way.
