"Life is like the ocean. It can be calm or still, and rough or rigid, but in the end, it is always beautiful." This scenic, outdoor footpath is a "must" to experience while exploring the towns and sights of Maine's southern coast. Walking along Marginal Way was an uplifting experience for us 3 on such a beautifully sunny and breezy... More

The ocean view while walking a couple of miles through this trail is fantastic. At the end of Marginal way is Perkins Cove -- lots of restaurants and shop. Treat yourself to a lobster roll at the Footbridge, the best ever!

I did not have much time to wander but I did find these walk to be just perfect on a day like today! Fresh salty air and signs of spring all around.

Walk along the cliffs of the Atlantic Coastline. Natural beauty with small beaches along the way. Marginal Way stretches from Perkins Cove to Ogunquit. A beautiful walk nine months out of the years. Well cared for walkway. Food available in Perkins Cove and Ogunquit. Perfect for all ages.

We had a great time walking along the ocean. I loved the benches along the way so you could soak in the view. We had the treat of watching surfers on the day we went. I loved that there were some spots with stairs down to the beach so our kids could climb on the rocks.

We started our walk at Perkins Cove and in about a mile and 1/4 its over and you want to walk it again. There are so many interesting features to the shoreline; you can walk this path hundreds of times and find something new and interesting to look at. Please put your phone and camera down for a minute to... More

Not sure why someone couldn't have run a snowblower along this trail to clear it, as it is paved and seems easy to do. Patches of snow and ice made this a bit tricky but the views are lovely.

Marginal way brings you from Ogunquit beach to Perkins Cove. If you would like some beautiful Atlantic views, take this nice walk along the rocky coastline in scenic Ogunquit Maine
