We started on Perkins Cove, ouch, the parking charges are extortionate, suggest trying to park at the other end. Between 10 and 20 dollars to park for an hour or so is daylight robbery. The walk is pretty enough, I suppose we were spoilt after...More

Although the homes aren't as grand, I think this is a nicer walking path than the Cliff Walk in Newport, RI. although it is busy, there are great views everywhere (especially on the southern end) and many places to stop, sit and enjoy the view.

We walked the first section of Marginal Way starting at Perkins Cove. It was beautiful with snowj-laden trees.

We enjoyed the Marginal Way both days of our weekend stay. The views of the ocean and beaches are spectacular, and we were able to spot at least 7 different varieties of seabirds. Wonderful!

This was a nice walk - even on an awful day when the Forester was arriving. Lovely stretch of coast.

Great walk and view. At Perkins cove, most business have closed for the season so no expectations there. A good walk overall.

one of my favorite walks in the world. Just did it again last week in the cloudy rainy weather and it gave me complete peace. Wonderful to be there with few others, ocean sounds are lovely.

Fun walk along the rocky Maine shoreline. Watch the waves pound the rocks as you pick your way among the boulders or stick to the walking trail for an easier go of it.

I visited Marginal Way in July. There is paid parking at either end, and other lots as well. Take a drive around and see what is available. If you are there during summer, you can find out about the trolley route. I did... More
