Take an amazing walk along the eastern shore of Newport, Rhode Island at the Rough Point Cliff Walk.

The Rough Point Cliff Walk begins at the western end of Easton's or First Beach at Memorial Boulevard and runs south with major exits along the way. The northern half of the cliff walk is the easiest portion, with paved paths and some steps. That would be from Memorial Boulevard to Forty Steps and back. Walking the other portion can be more difficult to maneuver with rocky, slippery areas and deep drop-offs. Walkers need to be especially careful and alert over this natural and rugged area. One way is 3.5 miles with amazing ocean views, crashing waves and sea breezes on one side, and spectacular mansions on the other side. Check out the online maps and decide what would be best for you or your group. Many visitors take the entire trail and love the challenges. Leashed dogs are welcome (please clean up after them). The cliff walk is world-famous as a public access walk that shows the natural beauty of the shoreline and also the architectural history of Newport's gilded age as you view the amazing mansions along the shore. Also, the wildflowers, birds, and rock formations are utterly spectacular. This is a National Recreation Trail in a National Historic District. Public restrooms are open during daylight hours at Narragansett Ave. The trail is available every day and is free to use.
