Of course it's one of the most scenic and beautiful. if you go between Memorial day and Labor day especially on weekends it is not intimate, it is overcrowded and people are loud. I don't enjoy it!

Absolutely gorgeous water views. After September 30th dogs are allowed. Lots of people, totally paved and accessible to wheelchairs. A good stroll for all ages.

If you are thinking “hike”, this doesn’t cut it but, It’s an absolutely lovely walk. We went in early September after most of the crowds had subsided. It was still very very busy. It is a definite must if you are vacationing for the first time at the seacoast.

Leisurely and beautiful views which change with the tides and the time of day. Never disappointing. I even walked a short portion of it New Year’s Eve one year...a little snowy and very cold.

A nice walk along the coast of Ogunquit. Very busy during tourist season but gorgeous views are worth the crowds.

Absolutely loved this trail! It’s paved in some spots and gravel in others. It goes along the edge of the ocean so you have an amazing view with every step and corner you go around. Cliff walks are so much fun as this trail had plenty of areas to get down to the ocean at low tide also to explore. It’s a good length for a little outing ending at this very cute little bay with some fun shops including a chocolate shop. Very pretty and absolutely well worth the stroll.

Super sunny, beautiful but a bit crowded. Great short walk to start the day off. Great views of the ocean and ocean front property. A must if your in Ogunquit ME!

Easy, paved cliff walk with beautiful views of the rocky coast. Child friendly, with plenty of benches if a pause is needed. Access to inlets along the way. Fairly busy on a May Sunday afternoon.

Amazing walk overlooking the ocean. Stunning views of the ocean, boats and large homes. There are benches along the way and many beautiful photo opportunities. We followed the trail to Perkins Cove for some shopping and lunch before following it back to our car. The only con is that this is a very trafficked trail. We will definitely visit this trail again!

One of the most beautiful views in the world- if you don't mind sharing it with hundreds of others at the same time. A perfect spot for photography and a nice easy stroll with family.

Too many people even though we especially scheduled our walk later in the day.

Gorgeous walk with spectacular views of the ocean! Beautiful scenic views and atmosphere. The walk is highly trafficked on a beautiful weekend afternoon. The trail is an easy walk to which you can enjoy leisurely the sounds of waves hitting rocks, to nicely manicured gardens and friendly gatherings.
