This attraction is free to enter, has free parking and has clean restrooms. Trail should be suitable for people of all abilities (if have mobility issues, call and ask). There are areas you can climb down rocks to get closer to the water. Bring camera...More

There are ocean trails and wooded trails that intersect. If you arrive early you may see some deer but try to keep your distance so they won't get scared. Water fowl and regular birds are usually in abundance and in the winter you might even...More

One of my favorite places in Newport. Away from the hubbub of Thames St and America's Cup way. Gorgeous views of the Rhode Island Sound and the Sakonnet River. Gentle hiking trails lead around the point and down onto the rocks. Lots of bird life....More

There's no admission to the National Wildlife Refuge. No special footwear required. It was a beautiful day for a walk along the coast of Rhode Island. No crowds when we went on a Wednesday around noon. You have the view of the ocean for the...More

This is a great place to go to see beautiful vistas of the Atlantic Ocean. Walking trails provide a place to explore. Never crowded once you're on the trails. In the winter this is a prime spot for birding.

Always a good walk - you get great views of the ocean (including seeing the cliff walk in the distance) along with lots of birds (that you may only hear instead of see!).

Very tranquil. Great for a walk, run, or family hike. Plenty of wildlife. Be careful with ticks. Great ocean views. FRESH AIR!

The info center itself was well-presented with knowledgeable, friendly staff. The trails were well-kept, wide, and seemed to be of a surface that handicapped people would be able to navigate. Birds were all over the place; the trails were well-marked; the views were spectacular.

In some ways, the "best" spot is at Sachuset Point itself, which is between shoreline access points 2 and 4 on the refuge map that you can get at the headquarters or can download online (can't list the URL here due to TA... More

Its open, check on visitors center hours, sure it would be rough going with all the snow, trails aren't cleared. But some good viewing if you're up to it. Skis or snow shoes???
