View a video about The Marginal Way!
The Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine is one of New England's only paved, public shoreline footpaths. This vacationland jewel, which spans a little more than a mile along a spectacular coast, connects Perkins Cove to Ogunquit Beach. Vacationers in search of peace can feel the salty air and catch sweeping panoramic views of the Atlantic Ocean from one of many benches along the way.
Residents and long-time visitors tell stories of walking their treasured Marginal Way when they were children. The land was donated to the Town of Ogunquit in1925 and a non-profit organization was established in 2010 to protect the Marginal Way for generations to come.
This walk is one of the most spectacular places to enjoy views of the ocean and to watch the surf crashing against the rocks. The area that the walk travels, was originally set aside for all to enjoy in the early part of the century. The path is now maintained by the Town of Ogunquit as a public area enjoyed by thousands of people each year.
