I was a miserable wet day when we did the cliff walk but the walk was still busy and delightful. The views of the houses and history they hold managed to shine through on a cold wet day and helped to blow the cobwebs away.

The walk was beautiful and entertaining for all. We enjoyed being able to scan the qr codes and learn more about the properties. Views cannot be beat. We passed many amazing mansions.

It was snowing when we went and it looked beautiful. We only did the paved walk and stopped to look at one of the areas that is not paved. Got some pretty pictures. Definitely go, you do not need to do the whole trail.

The walk is approximately 3.5 miles one way. Much is paved, but some parts are not. Those sections that aren't paved are not too difficult to navigate, but you must pay attention so as not to slip. These sections do not have guardrails. At some...More

I've been on the cliff walk multiple times, and I always try to go when visiting the area. It never ceases to amaze me. The views are just stunning. You can walk as far or as short as you would like. My husband and I...More

Wear comfortable shoes, sunscreen, and be prepared for some difficult, rocky, walking conditions. Parts of the trail are easy walking on a paved pathway, but don't be fooled. There are other parts where you are walking on slippery, uneven surfaces. We did the entire walk...More

This was a very interesting walk, mostly an easy walk with sidewalks but the most fun was when we had to navigate rocks and craggy areas. Definitely a need for sturdy footwear and some coordination skills. The mansions were beautiful as was the water views,...More

This is a great way to see some of the mansions and a spectacular view of the water. Wear comfortable shoes-some parts are very uneven.
