If I lived in Ogunquit I would walk the length of this every day. But then again, if I lived in Ogunquit I might get sick of seeing tourists like me, every day.

So, strolling the Marginal Way on a beautiful October , Sunday in the mid afternoon, was a great plan. Many people had the same idea! It was very busy, with that being said it is not to be missed. This easy walk has spectacular views. We waked in the afternoon at low tide and then went back on Monday morning... More

Marginal Way is a beautiful trail along the coast of Maine. You pick it up in Perkins Cove in Ogunquit and it goes for about a mile. It is a very easy walk.

We love walking the Marginal Way, no matter the weather. It is great fun to sit on the benches overlooking the water. The lovely homes along the way with their gardens make for a special place. It is well maintained and a joy to visit.

The views are breath taking and having a paved path along the ocean was lovely. There were a lot of walkers in Mid October, so I can't imagine how crazy it must be in the summer.
