Great site at the end of a peninsula. It provides 2 great loop walks along the coast. The visitor center is also worth a visit. Lots of information about the local ecology. Its next to 2nd beach, a good combo to visit together.

This is a fantastic, rustic place to run/walk. There are spectacular views and it is away from crowded areas of Newport. It is quiet--there are great places to sit by the ocean and walk along rocky areas. It is a little gem.

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???
