    I wanted to go to Maine for years, my parents took us to Ogunquit and we walked the Marginal Way, that was 12 years ago! What a spectacular place, so relaxing and with breath taking views. Now each fall we drive from Ohio to Maine, I can’t wait until I can bring my grandchildren to see your wonderful town. I think about Ogunquit all year long, until I can return in the fall.

    This is truly a wonderful medium to keep those of us who love the Marginal way and Ogunquit in touch with the prevailing conditions. Looking forward once again to spending some quality time in Ogunquit this summer and of course the wonderful views and atmosphere that walking the MW provides. Thanks to all who support and maintain this treasured walkway.

    we are coming up to walk the marginal way but it looks like it hasn’t been plowed. Do you need a donation?

    • George Hamilton says:

      The town closes the Marginal Way in the winter, which is why it is not plowed. The Marginal Way Preservation Fund does not own the walkway and so does not have any control over this policy. As for donations, of course, we always welcome contributions from our friends to help preserve this beautiful scenic landmark for future generations.

      • Jess says:

        I’m visiting Ogunquit March 27, will the Marginal Way be open?

        • George Hamilton says:

          The weather and condition of the walkway will determine this. The town does not clear the pathway in the winter. If the snow and ice have cleared from the Marginal Way, then it will be open.

    I can never get enough of the views on Marginal Way. A truly beautiful place by the sea! Plan to be back there soon….

    It’s snowing today in Ogunquit (1/24/15)! Thank you for giving me the chance to see one of my most favorite places in the world whenever I wish to. The Marginal Way is such a jewel. I have been visiting it for the last ten years and love it dearly.

  6. Most beautiful Marginal Way & Perkins Cove. My spirit connects to Gods awesome wonders. Eases stress, calming effect & peaceful.

      Enjoy looking at Marginal Way and the sea through the webcam. Thanks for making this available. It brings me a “piece” of Ogunquit every day.

  7. Christine says:

    I love to look at the Marginal Way through the Lighthouse camera. This reminds me of the days that I spend in Perkins Cove each year in September. I walk on this path to the beach of Ogunquit and back to my hotel. At night, I admire the sea sitting on one of the benches that line this beautiful little road. Such a wonderful view when the moon shines above the ocean! I look forward to September! I can’t wait!
    Thank you for giving us the chance to immerse ourselves in this beautiful landscape during the harsh cold winter days….

  8. Ben, we do not own the Marginal Way. Our mission is strictly fundraising. Please contact the Town of Ogunquit.

    I so appreciate the web cams !
    I grew up going to Ogunquit every summer in the 60’s and 70’s. Had my honeymoon at the cliff house in 03.
    Great job in preserving this magical area.
    planning to go in 15 w my kids to pass it along.
    Thank you for a great Job !

    Just back from Ogunquit. Have been watching Marginal Way webcam. Marvelous shots – reminding me of a wonderful spiritual experience spending time along side and experiencing the power of the ocean. Thank you so much. Will donate at a later time – after I pay for my Ogunquit trip. lol

    Oh… This is so awesome. My family used to spend half of the year in Maine when I was younger. We would walk the Marginal Way every weekend. I could almost do it blindfolded.
    Sadly, I have not had the chance to come back in over 20 years. This is a wonderful reminder of my childhood. Thank you!!!!

  12. Don Sugarman says:

    Marginal Way is a special place for my wife and me. We always walk the Marginal Way, when visiting Ogunquit. <a href="; title "Click here" for a short video of my mom, dad, and great-uncle Sam Richmond on the Marginal Way, maybe in the 40's. (Hope the link works.)
    Keep up with the great work, and good luck with the fund drive.

  13. DaveB says:

    As summer fast approaches our friends and family who gather every early August in Ogunquit are once again looking forward to enjoying the Marginal Way. We have photos of the kids from age 2 to now seniors in college taken at scenic stops along the way. It has made for a memorable photo collection. It would not be summer without numerous walks on the Marginal Way. Love the webcam!!!

  14. donnajeanne says:

    My husband and I visit here twice a year,it is one of the most beautiful places on earth. When you are walking on the marginal way and you come to the lighthouse you can go to the other side and there is a slot for donations, we occasionally leave money there and I do love this webcam a lot its wonderful to be “there”.

  15. Joe & Marcia Bachand says:

    Just got back from a lovely weekend in Ogunquit. Nice to check in on the marginal way this morning. The web cam is great.

  18. Nitro Norris says:

    View 4 never focuses well. It tries…but fails.

    I’d donate if I thought the cam might be improved.

      View 4 of our Lighthouse Camera is a close up of the beach (zoom shot).
      If you would like to put your request in writing in an email to me, I will send it to our engineer to determine if it can be more focused.
