Read reviews and decided we wanted to go see the Cliff Walk. Reviews were right - parking is tough. To find it go to the York Harbor Beach. The small parking lot at the beach is by permit only so you have to find parking...More

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,

This was a beautiful stop along the coast as we made our way into Maine. I felt it was very safe along the path, only a few places were very narrow. Glad we stopped. Loved the sound of the waves along the rocks.

Beautiful cliff walk along the beach. The weather was perfect and the path was clean. Sit along the way on huge rocks and enjoy the shore. Easy hike but wear sneakers anyway. You can do this in less than an hour or stay and enjoy...More

If you should get a chance to hang out in York Harbor Beach, be sure to go the cliff walk. It’s an easy hike and has beautiful sweeping views of the harbor.

We did the walk but there appeared to be a lot of warnings not to do it because it wasn’t safe. It was almost as if the locals did not want people to do it. The walk also ended very abruptly.

Beautiful view, easy walk, nothing extremely impressive, but a very pleasant way to catch some sea air and enjoy being close to the water. In my opinion, access to more interesting rock scrambles is over restricted.

I don’t think so...the path is safe and not on the edge of the cliff...and as I recall, the cliffs were low...

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).
