We really enjoyed this walk. As others have mentioned it was crowded so you have to "stroll" at the speed of traffic. Views are gorgeous. Many places to go out on the rocks or down to small beaches. In Ogunquit you begin your journey at the Sparhawk. If you take the path towards the beach you are past the access... More

Marginal Way is well worth the time! My wife and I really enjoyed a relaxing stroll along the rocky shoreline. We sat on a rock jetty for a while to catch some of the stand-up paddleboard competition that was going on while we were there. The properties along the way are very well maintained, and the trail is very clean... More

The vistas are beautiful I'll grant you that. However the path is very narrow and crowded with overgrown hedges on one side. Because it is not a full loop it is a slightly unsatisfying walk. The benches along the way are nice to rest on.

Based on all the rave reviews, we looked forward to a wonderful and inspiring trek along the Marginal Way but instead were pretty much bored with the walk. OK scenery along a fairly narrow paved walkway while dodging hundreds of other people just didn't "float our boat". Boring and over-hyped.

This walk is beautiful. A must if you are able to walk. There are many benches along the way if you want to just sit and relax or catch a few more minutes of a beautiful biew.

Beautiful walk above the gorgeous ocean coastline of Maine. Watching the ocean crash into the rocks while sitting on one of many benches along the 1.25 mile walkway. This is definitely a must do while in Ogunquit.

a fantastic walk which allows you to experience the beautiful sea coast of Maine. All types of people are met along the way. Families, joggers, walkers and the array of beautiful homes make this walk a must do

The Marginal Way in Ogunquit is a must see & do when in southern Maine. It is a comfortable walk along a paved path along the beautiful rocky and rugged coastal waterfront. The path is narrower in some spots but still very easy walking. People are courteous and will allow you to pass. There are part benches frequently along the... More
