In March 2022, a small section of Newport’s famed Cliff Walk collapsed leaving the vast majority of Cliff Walk open but there is a small detour, a one block detour.
I write this blog because many of my clients are from out-of-state and Cliff walk is a popular place to drop to one knee and proposed to ones beloved partner.
Parking (Paid) on Narragansett Avenue is open as normal.
Cliff Walk Access
North is open (turn left at the end of Narraganset Avenue)
The 40 Steps (at the end of Narragansett Avenue) is Open
South – is closed at Narragansett Avenue and there is a one block detour (see map). the detour is a lovely walk through the beautiful Salve Regina University. You will enjoy the detour, I loved it!
Cliff Walk heading North towards the beaches is open, and can be accessed from Narragansett Avenue
The 40 Steps is open, and can be accessed from Narragansett Avenue
Access to Cliff Walk heading south towards Webster Road is closed-off.
The walking detour is well sign posted.
