We are slowly making our way to Baxter State Park in Maine to begin hiking southbound on the Appalachian Trail- Maya and I for about 600 miles and Naomi the whole darn thing. The scenery throughout our drive has been gorgeous, but I want to tell you about walking the Marginal Way in Olgunquit, Maine. The Marginal Way is a beautiful short stroll along the Atlantic coast in the quaint town of Olgunquit. Only 1.5 miles and well paved, this is a walk that anybody can do. We saw people of all ages enjoying the breathtaking ocean views and stopping at the numerous benched overlooks. And oh my goodness- it was hard not to covet the houses along the trail!
Parking was plentiful in numerous lots throughout the area and for 10 bucks we could stay as long as we liked. We took our time exploring the various shops before walking the path and while we didn’t stop to eat, there were tons of delicious smelling options along the walkway.
As always, Happy Trails!
