It`s an ocean viewing walk that either brings you to Perkins Cove for your lobster rolls at The Lobster Shack or going the other way, downtown for your delicious pastry experience at Bread and Roses. It`s a pretty much level path with quite a few new benches placed along it .The benches provide a nice respite for talk and meditative ocean viewing and/or people viewing . Some beautiful whtie cedar trees with their gnarly roots help make the scene a little more special . Many of the benches have been thoughtfully placed at picturesque viewing areas . There are several openings where you can leave the path and get closer to the water. This involves walking out onto the rocky areas, some a little challenging than others. It`s a memorable walk that you won`t want to miss . It mellows me out just thinking about it.

We did this walk after doing the walk along Rye in NH and both are very nice but we liked seeing the much larger beachfront houses in Rye. Ogunquit and Perkins Cove were both cute, New England small towns with shops and many restaurants. A nice day trip.

About 1 mile, little rises but no big hills. Of course, the ocean is the thing that makes it a lovely walk.

One of the loveliest places to walk in Maine or anywhere else. The views are wonderful and the pathways well kept. It's an experience not to be missed in Ogunquit

Marginal Way is another great spot in Ogunquit. The walk along the rocky coast isn't very long and it's very easy to traverse, with a paved path the whole way. There are many benches for you to just take a break, sit for a while and stare out over the waves and towards the horizon for as long as you want. It does get a little crowded at times, even early in the morning. Still, it's a great way to experience the coast of Maine and the Atlantic up close and personal.
