Birding in Rhode Island

About Ledge Road Access
Located near the southern end of Bellevue Avenue, before Ocean Drive, this right-of-way provides access to the end of Cliff Walk. Unlike the other parts of Cliff Walk, this end of the walkway is not paved. Caution should be taken, as this section consists of boulders, dirt paths, and narrow passages along the bluffs. This is a popular site for skin and scuba diving and fishing.
