The Cliff Walk lives up to its name and is Newport’s signature hike. On one side take in the stunning coastline and on the other you’ll get a stellar view of many of Newport’s gilded age era mansions. Hike the full three-and-a-half mile trail and you’ll see original Vanderbilt family mansions: Marble House, Rough Point, and Renaissance-style The Breakers among others. There are plenty of different entry and exit points for those not wanting to do the full trail. Avoid hiking on a windy day as the terrain can get rough in patches and there are cliff drops not suitable for small kids or those prone to vertigo.
