Newport Cliff Walk

Newport Cliff Walk The Newport Cliff Walk will never be mistaken for backcountry, but it's 3.5 mile stretch of rocky New England coastline is nonetheless a fun outdoor adventure. We hiked it on a beautiful partly sunny Sunday, beginning at Easton's Beach and proceeding all the way to the southern terminus on Bellevue Avenue, followed by a walk into town and back to our starting point.
