This is a beautiful area for walking. The landscaping is lovely and flowers are everywhere. The scenic views are worth the walk. You get to see the ocean with gorgeous sail and fishing boats.

Just spectacular views of the Maine coastline. Exhilarating to feel the ocean breeze and smell the ocean air.

Do you love the ocean but don't feel like lying on the beach or swimming or battling crowds? Take some time for your thoughts, a good conversation, laughter and awe.

The marginal way has a collection of large houses (mansions?) looking out to the sea. I think that many of them were built as summer cottages for the wealthy. Fun to walk by them and the ocean, and imaging being a Rockafeller

Marginal Way is the quintessential Maine walk. The rocky coastline, small inlet beaches, views of the horizon, and gorgeous views are exquisite.

Only hiked a short distance, but very unique. A nice town and trail, a great introduction to new visitors to Maine.

It starts from Shore road and hugs the coastline to Perkin's Cove. Beautiful views of the rock and the oceans. Perfect spot for an artist, writer for inspiration. Hey 2 of my coworkers got engaged on it. beautiful green-spaces all along the pathway.

A paved walkway along the coast that offers some great photo ops. We parked at Perkins Cove, also a scenic spot, and walked back towards town. Make sure to dress accordingly, the sea breeze can be very cold, and the path is not maintained in the winter, ice and snow in places.
