The Cliff Walk along Newport’s Easton Beach is probably the most notable of all walking tours in our beautiful City by the Sea. Its 3.5 mile trail leads you along historic coast lines, through Salve Regina University and along the sprawling lawns of many of our famed Gilded Age Mansions. The Walk is extraordinary and a must do for the trail hound. With that said there are many options for people who like short strolls around town or scenic paths along nature preserves and state parks. My top trails are: Brenton State Park, the Norman Bird Sanctuary, Sachuset Point National Wildlife Refuge, Fort Adams state park, and strolling along the paths of “The Point” district (it’s like a walk through the colonial era).
