While at the Newport Visitor center, one of the people giving advice mentioned this after we mentioned that we had completed the Cliff Walk. We found to be a much more impressive walk than the Cliff Walks. Definitely off the beaten path!

This is a great place for walking or jogging, going for a walk with friends or by yourself. The views are stunning. You can sometimes spot a deer.
