Marginal Way Walkway, Ogunquit
(4.9/5 based on 3,600+ reviews on the web)
Take in the salty air and sweeping views of the Atlantic coast along , a paved oceanside cliff walk. The 1.6 km (1 mi) path, stretching from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach, hugs the quaint artist community of Ogunquit, full of seaside eateries and shops. Zip up your windbreaker and head out on foot along the scenic trail to admire the dramatic rocky coastline dotted with lighthouses and whitewashed cottages. Stop for a warm cup of New England clam chowder at the famous Cliff House in town before you leave. Due to the area’s high parking fees, plan to park in town and catch a local trolley to the coast. See Marginal Way Walkway and all Ogunquit has to offer by arranging your trip with our Ogunquit itinerary builder.

  • Ogunquit is a lovely little village with easy parking. You must walk the Marginal Way when you are there - accessed from the middle of Shore Road by little cul-de-sac and is 1.25 miles long to Perkins...  more »
  • Great walk anytime of year! A MUST DO in Ogunquit! Beautiful scenery! Not a difficult walk. Whichever way you choose to walk there are shops and restaurants on each end. You will not be disappointed ! 
  • Well travelled path with great views. A nice walk into the interesting town and an alternative to taking the sidewalk with a great view.
