The Marginal Way of Ogunquit

A walk in the clouds.

The Marginal Way was a gift to the people of Ogunquit given by Josiah Chase in 1923.  It is currently a paved path alongside the cliffs of Ogunquit.  You can pick it up from the town and walk all the way to Perkins Cove.

The path has fantastic views of crashing waves, the Ogunquit beach and nearby cities.

There are gorgeous houses along the way.  The path is peppered with bayberries, roses and twisted trees and curiosities like a mini-lighthouse.

It's an easy walk but if you get tired, there are about thirty memorial benches along the way where you can sit and enjoy the view.
