Newport cliff walk

The cliff walk is a beautiful walk and there is plenty to do in town. If it's warm enough you might want to bring a bathing suit as we will be right next to the beach. Also, I would recommend car pooling since it's approximately an hour and 40 min. drive from Boston. The Cliff Walk along the eastern shore of Newport, RI is world famous as a public access walk that combines the natural beauty of the Newport shore line with the architectural history of Newport's gilded age. Wildflowers, birds, geology ... all add to this delightful Walk. In 1975 the Walk was designated as a National Recreation Trail ... the 65th in the nation and first in New England. The Walk runs 3.5 miles and about two-thirds of the walk is in easy walking condition. What makes Cliff Walk unique is that it is a National Recreation Trail in a National Historic District.

    It was a spectacular day for a walk along the ocean and the beautiful streets of Newport, and it's always fun getting to know people better over lunch afterward.

    Well Tina, I was surrounded by all the sweet ladies during that walk. Ice cream would have been anti-climatic !

    Gerry, I think you deserved an ice cream after all that!

    Man, I really lucked out because I didn't plan for this walk (I sorta crashed it). Greg's pedometer gadget says we coverded about 8 miles. With the 3.6 mile "workout hike" that preceeded this walk, it turned out to be a very extended and productive day.

    Carpool from the Houghton's Pond parking lot, Hillside Street, Milton. This is a large parking lot for at least 100 cars. Use 850 Hillside for your GPS.
