Explore the eastern shore of Newport, Rhode Island, at the Rough Point Cliff Walk.

The Rough Point Cliff Walk starts at the western end of Easton's or First Beach at Memorial Boulevard. It runs south and has several exits along the way. The northern half of the cliff walk is the most accessible portion and has paved paths with some steps. This portion runs from Memorial Boulevard to Forty Steps. You will encounter rocky, slippery areas and deep drop-offs past that point. Be especially careful and alert while traversing through this natural and rugged area. This totals 3.5-miles (one way) and has fantastic ocean views, crashing waves and sea breezes on one side, and spectacular mansions on the other side.

Check out the online maps on their website to determine which route works best for you. Many visitors like to explore the entire trail, and leashed dogs are welcome (please clean up after them). The cliff walk is world-famous as a public access walk showcasing the shoreline's natural beauty and the architectural history of Newport's gilded age. You will also see wildflowers, birds, and awe-inspiring rock formations. Public restrooms are open during daylight hours at Narragansett Ave. The trail is free and open daily to everyone. If you need a scenic place to walk in Rhode Island, look no further than the Rough Point Cliff Walk.
