40 Steps

40 Steps is located less than 1 mile from the start of the Cliff Walk. This beautiful granite staircase not only brings you closer to the water, but as well as to the history of the Gilded Age. 40 Steps once was a beloved hangout destination for servants who worked at the surrounding mansions. It is still a popular spot that many visitors and locals of Aquidneck Island make their way to every day. There is parking at the very end of Narragansett Avenue, as well as several park benches overlooking the ocean. Open from dawn to dusk.
