This world-recognized footpath travels cliffs straddling the Atlantic Ocean on one side and the impressive mansions of Newport on the other. Recognized as New England’s first national recreation trail, this high-wire act combines natural and architectural splendor while overlooking the shores of Rhode Island Sound. Most of the trail is level asphalt hiking, but the last part works over rocks and irregular natural terrain as it circles around Rough Point to end on Bellevue Avenue, home of Newport’s swankiest estates.
