Walked it to Perkins Cove and then back again. Absolutely amazing! It's a pretty easy walk and the view is jaw dropping. Got plenty of photos. Now just have to decide on one for my wallpaper :)

Beautiful walk, I must do while you're in Ogunquit. We were even able to get down on the beach and do a little shell searching

Extensive walking path. Wear good walking or hiking shoes. Might be difficult for elderly or impaired walkers. Ample parking. Beautiful views of rocky coast. Recommended

None that I have seen. Best thing to do is to make it to the end. I think there is a port o potty. Or make it to one of the restaurants at Perkins cove. Hopes this helps.

I doubt that it has much ice or snow since it borders on the ocean, and it hasn’t been all that cold lately. To be sure, I’d call one of the local hotels. I don’t believe they ever close it down seasonally.
