The Cliff Walk is a 3.5 mile pathway beginning at the western end of Easton’s Beach (Newport’s largest beach and recreation area) and travels to the east end of Bailey’s Beach. Of course it can be done in either direction, and it is not necessary to complete the entire route. Opulent homes on one side and beautiful views of the ocean on the other. The northern section of the trail is paved and as you head further south, the trail and scenery becomes more natural and rugged, as you scramble over rocks and literally hang over the cliff. Bring a picnic and good shoes. If you don’t feel up to the long walk back, consider a return trip on the trolley.
