Newport Cliff Walk
The Newport Cliff Walk is a 3 1/2 mile path along the coast that offer wonderful view of some of the Gilded Age mansions as well as the wild and rocky Atlantic coast. Alex and I actually did the Cliff Walk in 2005 but I had been wanting to go again (for quite a while actually) to experience the beauty of the coastline and the views of the gardens and houses. The first half is paved and very well-maintained, with the last section crossing rocks and rougher terrain. There are a few tunnels as well that allow you to pass under private property. The morning we went was bright and cloudy but we got a bit rained on during the return trip. Fortunately we had planned on doing the (mostly) indoor tours of the mansions in the afternoon so our timing was pretty good.
Love it…. this is right up my alley; hiking and architecture. Nice shots!
I’d definitely recommend it, Ingrid. It’s a beautiful stroll!
