We walked along the Marginal Way with our family for the first time last week. We parked in the Ogunquit Beach parking lot and walked along the foot path where we had a wonderful view the bay. The path took us to Shore Road and we followed the stream of people heading to the left and then cut through the grounds of a hotel to arrive at the Marginal Way (a sign on Shore Road indicated the entrance). We were walking around 7:30pm at night so were able to get some beautiful pictures of our kids and our family during sunset. We all truly enjoyed the walk, stopping many times along the path so we could appreciate all of the sights along the way. We actually returned the next night and parked at Perkins Cove and walked the path in the opposite direction. If you are visiting this area, make sure to make some time to walk along the Marginal Way.

Great trail parallel to the ocean. Beautiful view of the ocean, beach and greenery. Also, a great way to get from town to Perkins Cove and eat at the restaurants there.

Had absolutely no dislike, absolutely enjoyed the walk, the view, the benches on the cliff at different locations, the beautiful homes on the Marginal Waywhich allowed me to dream of owning one of them, the different spots where we could actually go into the water. "Rugged Coastline" is amazing. The Marginal Way is a must for any visit to Maine.

Last year I stopped here with my 10 daughter and she was mesmerized. The tidal pools and climbing over and through the rocks was a lot of fun. At the north end is a beach which is a nice place. I stopped here again with a few more kids and they played for hours.

The Marginal Way is really cool and different.
