Walk Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine, for Scenic Ocean Views
The one and a quarter mile Marginal Way walking path in Ogunquit, Maine, affords incredibly scenic views of the rocky coastline, cliffs and beautiful Ogunquit Beach.
Enhanced by a colorful array of sweet-smelling flowers along the way, Marginal Way is simply one of our favorite walks in New England. You’ll experience some inclines, but, overall, Marginal Way is a gentle hike and very well paved. We see people of all ages here — some walking without breaks and others using one of the myriad benches to take a break.
We usually park at Perkins Cove (there’s a parking fee), but foot access to Marginal Way is free. Finishing in downtown Ogunquit, you have the option to take a summer trolley back to Perkins Cove. We have always walked the whole distance, but it’s nice to know that one has the option of getting a ride back to your starting point.
If in the southern Maine area, be sure to include Marginal Way as part of your travel. We think you’ll be amazed by this one-of-a-kind scenic destination.
