Really enjoyed our walk along this beautiful well maintained walk with benches and scenery. Loved the Mahogany Bridge and all the plants along the way. A must see in Ogunquit.

We drove in from NY on Friday and stopped in Perkins Cove for lunch and then headed straight for the trail. What a great welcome to Maine. Beautiful views, a nice little walk to stretch our legs and a great kick off to our weekend....More

The Marginal Way offers amazing views and is a relatively easy walk for most people - strollers and wheelchairs can be used as it is a paved pathway roughly 5 feet wide throughout. It can get crowded, and parking may not always be easy (my...More

Very easy walk to do didn’t feel long at all. Shops and restaurants on both ends with bathrooms. There are access spots to the beach. Very pretty view of the ocean.

For one of the most spectacular seaside walks, nothing beats the Marginal Way. This trail leads along the cliffs of Ogunquit and travels from Perkins Cove to The Sparhawk Resort. The pathway is paved in some parts, and natural in most others (unless it is...More

I’m sorry I don’t know ~ I would honestly say no. But would suggest calling 1 of the hotels in the area to ask. Good luck !

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.
