This spectacular hike rambles above the Atlantic Ocean along clay bluffs that offer some of the most dramatic views of any hike on Block Island. With plenty of lookout points along the way, you and your dog will enjoy feeling the mist on your face and the smell of saltwater in the air. Heading east from the trailhead, the path meanders along, lined with large sycamore maples and a smattering of beach rose bushes on its way down to the ocean. Before reaching the beach, make a quick stop at Clay Head Swamp, where your dog might enjoy a quick drink on a hot day.
