Thompsons Station, TN

A rewarding trail with ocean views and lots of looks at the scenic town of Newport. It's an easy trail to take and follow, so likely crowded in peak seasons and times, but I had it to myself on a May morning at sunrise--well, I shared it with a couple of deer. A few spots lend themselves to scrambling on the rocky coastline; allow plenty of time for that. This trail makes for a more natural counterpart to the famed Cliff Walk and is worthy of a look. The Ocean View Loop Trail offers better views, but Flint Point is scenic as well.
