Loved the paved walk along the ocean. The path is a little over a mile one way and the views are spectacular. The only downside is that parking is $10 at any parking area.

The Cliff Walk is a bit rugged in spots, but worth the effort. You'll be right at the edge of classic Maine rocky cliffs for a stunning view of the ocean. Wear sensible shoes for the rugged terrain.

This walk is not easy, but well worth the effort. The view of the harbor sea and beach are lovely and the walk takes you through woods, near beautiful seaside views,

We went out to do this walk one afternoon, but never found it! I first tried using the directions given, then tried the map on this site and I can comfortably say, the map on this site had us driving about 40 minutes to the...More

We went on the Cliff Walk starting at the York Harbor Beach along the coast. We were apprehensive at first from the warnings, but with sneakers you will be fine. Some areas had damage from storms, but most was very safe. The views of the...More

I don't know if Cliff Walk is the accurate term, more like an edge of harbor walk. We found it on the other side of the road from the Wobbly Bridge (which we learned about from our hotel desk clerk).
