This path is fantastic! Very scenic with a beautiful walk along the ocean cliffs. One end in Perkins Cove and the other in downtown Ogunquit. Well cared for and gorgeous even on a cold November day.

A short walk along the rocky cliffs of Ogunquit shouldn't be missed. Great views of the ocean and cliffs, areas to walk down to the rocky beaches. A nice place to take a nice walk.

Spectacular views of the ocean. You can take a wheelchair on the Marginal Way! It is a lovely walk anytime of the day. I do it everyday I am in Ogunquit.

Such a beautiful place to walk and enjoy the beauty of the water. Plenty of benches to sit and relax. Take a few pictures to bring back the memory once you are home again.

Love the river, the tides and the extremes of the beach. And nice food options. Our favorite beach in Maine by far.

This is a beautiful, well maintained path along the rocky coast. Benches are located in various places for rest and just looking at the ocean. It is a lovely walk for all ages.

I didn't notice any lights on the path as we walked. There are homes along the path but I don't think they would cast much lighting on the path.

I believe it's over a mile if you walk the entire path. It's paved the whole way.
