The Marginal Way, Ogunquit, Maine

The Marginal Way in Ogunquit, Maine is a footpath running alongside the ocean cliffs for about a mile and a quarter. It is not a strenuous walk, but a most lovely venue.

This strip of land that follows the sea was given to the town in 1923 by Josiah Chase. It begins in the village of Perkins Cove and offers spectacular views of the Atlantic surf bashing on the rocks, on a path that in some spots is a bower of beach roses, cedar trees, and honeysuckle.

A fund has been established to maintain The Marginal Way. Have a look here for more information on the geological history of this natural attraction.
