Names, dates, architectural styles, designers and other facts are listed for over 150 properties. Trail conditions, access, parking and distances in miles and kilometers are precisely shown.
It’s hard to imagine a more unique or beautiful trail. With the famous Gilded Age Newport mansions and summer cottages on one side of the path and the ocean close by on the other, there’s hardly a place along this fine trail that is not spectacularly scenic in some special way. The multitude of visitors who clamor to walk this 3.5 mile / 5.6 kilometer long trail prove with their feet and numbers that this is no ordinary place. It’s an easy boast to say there’s not a trail in the USA even closely similar to the Cliff Walk. With this comprehensive map in hand, you’ll be able to identify all of the historic houses and mansions along the way and you’ll learn interesting facts such as when they were built, their architectural style, or maybe a little something about their former Gilded Age owners, as well as where you can park your car, how far you still have to go, where to catch the bus, and much more.
David Brussat, Editor at the Providence Journal, wrote an excellent review of this map. You can read it here.
