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.

Very worth the 1+ mile walk. We went late October and the only the only thing was there were a lot of people. The ocean views are beautiful and there are plenty of places to sit if you need to rest. Rock formation gorgeous.

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.
