The Marginal Way is a seaside path that stretches along the granite coastline of Ogunquit, Maine. Entirely paved and mostly flat, it’s hardly a strenuous hike, yet it remains one of the most popular in New England.
People flock to the Marginal Way for the view. Though only 1¼ miles long, it offers more breathtaking vistas than any other trail you’ll find on the southern Maine coast. Benches along the way invite visitors to linger and enjoy the land, the sea, and the elemental beauty of the place where the two meet.
The Marginal Way is free and open year-round. Parking is available at Perkins Cove (follow Oarweed Road to its end) and in downtown Ogunquit.
