Lovely walk/hike. Beautiful views both of the water side and the land side. As you go South, the walk gets progressively more difficult and there are very few places to turn off. Still, a great experience.

7 miles round trip from end to end, but you don’t have to do that to enjoy the experience. We came in at the 40 steps, walked past the back of Salve Regina University and the Breakers and then turned around and walked back. Since...More

Beautiful walk past gorgeous mansions from the early 1900s. The Walk is about 3 miles but you can enter and exit at various places. The Breakers mansion is on the Cliff Walk and it’s a don’t miss.

Even though one of us is afraid of heights we had no problem traversing this easy walk on the cliffs. It was a great way to start the day.

Don’t miss taking a stroll or run here. It’s particularly beautiful at sunset. Views of the ocean, cliffs, mansions and Salve Regina University do not disappoint. So gorgeous!

I love walking, so this was a must! It's a rather long walk so it's best to go prepared. But it's so enjoyable and has a few rather scenic spots to pause at as well!

The 40 steps is an extension of the cliff walk and it won’t affect your visit in anyway. Youll be walking along the cliff and come to an area with the forty steps. You have an option to go down them (not up) to the bottom... More
