This is a really nice photogenic trail along the edge. Views the entire way are beautiful, it ends at a small beach. Parking is an issue, but then again that seems to be the norm with the beaches region in general.

This is a great hike/ walk along the ocean in York. It is less popular and less crowded than the Marginal Way walk in Ogunquit.

This is now only about a half mile. There are well paved areas and rougher parts. The views are good of the beach. If you are thinking it to be like Newport, think again.

Free parking and an average walk to the Atlantic where we posed for a picture of our toes in the Atlantic while a stranger offered to take our picture and we got hit by a big wave : )

Excellent ocean views. Need good walking shoes. Would enjoy doing this again - just a bit of morning exercise!

The cliff walk is a nice path following the cliffs on the water from York Harbor beach north. It is a narrow path, well marked, and safe. There are a few areas with stairs, but it is not a difficult hike. It is rather short,...More

It is not flat you can enter right behind the old Club facing the water or you can enter below at the beach. At the beach you will see signs and a trail follow it until you come to a rocky beach.The walk is fairly short 10... More
