Read reviews and decided we wanted to go see the Cliff Walk. Reviews were right - parking is tough. To find it go to the York Harbor Beach. The small parking lot at the beach is by permit only so you have to find parking...More

This walk is not easy, but well worth the effort. The view of the harbor sea and beach are lovely and the walk takes you through woods, near beautiful seaside views,
