Fortunately, you can access the Cliff Walk from Ruggles Avenue, which is just steps south of The Breakers . So you don’t have to go far at all or move your car. You may want to walk north from The Breakers , towards Narragansett Avenue (Ochre Court) and the beginning of Cliff Walk at Memorial Boulevard (Easton’s Beach).
Half the walk is fine but the part that is unpaved is really DANGEROUS , don’t take any kids under 10 years old with you, and if you are not in shape don’t go there, it’s really dangerous to walk in that part of the cliff walk .
The walk runs 3.5 miles and about two-thirds of the walk is in easy walking condition. You pass at your own risk on the walk , which is a public right-of-way over private property. In spots just a couple of feet from the path are abrupt drops of over 70 feet.
In order to make it from the beginning to the end of the walk without your ankles screaming, wear a comfortable pair of walking /running shoes to keep you light on your feet. Areas of the Cliff Walk offer climbing, terrain, and dirt. Another note; don’t wear your brand new pair of white Nikes.
