Soak up the scenery and salty air on America’s most beautiful coastal walks.

ClayheadTrail, BlockIsland, RI

1 of 11

An interconnected latticework of unmarked coastal pathways sounds like a place to get lost and frustrated. But islanders lavish praise upon “the maze” on Block Island’s Clayhead Trail. Follow the footpath down to the beach for a view over Block Island Sound, then retreat higher up to the bluffs for the same coastal view, only prettier; between the two you’ll spy nesting shorebirds in the wetlands.

Challenge Level: Easy.

Essential Gear: Take a wide-brimmed sailor’s hat, add a breathable crown, and you’ve got a product that will make you look like a local without sweating like one. (Tilley; $76.)
