Take this walk for the amazing views! Go all the way to Perkins Cove, a little more special than the street/sidewalk.

There is so much to do and see - and you never have to move your care if you don't want to. Real nice accommodations, restaurants, shopping, walking , scenery etc. Ogunquit has it all - summer or winter!

I love walking here. In the summer it's pretty busy and you need to arrive early to avoid traffic and get a good parking spot. It's worth it! The views are beautiful and it's a great walk. Great people watching too!

It was "Christmas by the sea" in OGT this weekend. We walked the marginal way and that evening, they had fireworks display from the beach parking lot. Awesome show for such a small town.

the trail winds along the rocky coast, with restaurants at one end. very scenic, and easy to walk. there are many places to enter the trail so walkers can choose the length of stroll they want.

I have done the Marginal way before but not in winter between two storms..even though it was raining we had the most beautiful sight with the waves crashing against the rocks.This is a must when in Maine.

Worth coming from afar to walk Marginal way. Best Ocean views in the east. Nicely maintained walkway ,with donated benches , along the way. Marginal way is the reason for visiting Ogunquit Maine.

What a place for a walk that is magical at any time of day in any season..... I lose myself in the beauty and magic of the waves pounding, the dramatic rocks, the beautiful houses, the beaches.... Walk and relax, cares go away... In the warm seasons walk in the water, lay down on the beach, ease across at low... More
