Cliff Walk Trail


The Cliff Walk Trail is a short 1-mile out-and-back trail that leads from the York Harbor Beach, along the cliff side, and then abruptly ends.

The trail starts out paved but quickly turns to unpaved and uneven hiking. You'll get amazing views of York Harbor and the beach below along with massive mansions along the coast.

This is a great day hike for anyone visiting the area. You can also extend your hike by checking out a couple of other trails close by. One of the trails is the Fisherman's Walk and is located just a few hundred feet from this trailhead. You can use the Fisherman's Walk Trail to connect to yet another great trail, the Wiggly Bridge.

Parking: Parking here can be tricky. If you're a resident with a permit, you can park along Harbor Beach Rd. If you do not have a permit, you can park on York Street (Route 1A) and walk down to the trailhead. The directions for this trail will lead you to the entrance to Harbor Beach Rd along York Street (Route 1A). Be respectful of the locals and do not park on Harbor Beach Rd if you do not have a permit.

Pets: Dogs are not permitted on this trail.

Biking: Biking is not permitted on this trail.
