On a good day this walk is narrow and has some steep and overgrown spots, but with some recent storms it is now downright treacherous, including one spot where the cement walkway is completely washed away. Wear hiking boots, not sneakers, and watch your step....More

Great views but a fairly treacherous walk. Not a good walk for older folks although I'm 79 but had help from my daughter & granddaughter (holding arms, hands). Grandma stayed in the car taking in he scenery and knitting. Really enjoyable.

Pick the wheelchair friendly oceanside walk in OGT (ogunquit) by the beach or in Perkins Cove. Easy walk, maybe a mile or so, hugs the cliffs of the ocean, nice "summer" homes not quite the mansions of Newport, RI or some on rt1A in Rye/No...More

Cold. Pretty. Remote feeling. A little dangerous (especially in the boots I was wearing). The views were spectacular. The folks we met were friendly.

This is a walk that not many tourists even know about (it's not as famous as the one in Ogunquit up the road). However, it's less crowded, more peaceful, and has beautiful views of the harbor, a small beach, gorgeous homes and summer 'cottages', and...More

Even on a cold day in late January it was well worth going on. Beautiful views of the harbor and small boats. The houses along the shore are interesting too.

This is one of my favorite spots to walk. A little scary at times as the cliff narrows a bit but worth the trip to the Harbor

I don’t think so...the path is safe and not on the edge of the cliff...and as I recall, the cliffs were low...

I don't know if Cliff Walk is the accurate term, more like an edge of harbor walk. We found it on the other side of the road from the Wobbly Bridge (which we learned about from our hotel desk clerk).
