Trail Markers on Cliff Walk

Finding out what you are looking at while strolling along Newport’s scenic Cliff Walk just got a lot easier, thanks to the installation of 16 trail markers along the iconic trail. The project, launched Monday, features posts with QR codes at various points of interest along the walkway. The codes link smartphones with content written by Salve Regina University Cultural and Historic Preservation Department students. The markers were installed by Boy Scout Troop #3 of Newport, led by Conner Flynn as part of his Eagle Scout project.
