Cliff walks are pretty common across Maine, but York Harbor's deserves credit for being a little more old school than its siblings. In places the 1-mile path is level and paved, but much of it is a rough, rocky scrabble that feels dangerously slippery after rain (watch your step!). That said, the raw oceanside scenery is simply outstanding.

There's no dedicated parking for this walk, but there is street parking on York St. You can access the walk via the Hartley Mason Reserve.
