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.

As of July, 2020 (and likely much earlier) this trail is closed likely due to COVID-19. Hikers, please leave a trip report when the trail is re-opened!

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 here can be tricky. If you're a resident with a permit, you can park along Harbor Beach Rd (next to the trailhead). If you do not have a permit, you can park on York Street (Route 1A) and walk down to the trailhead. The parking 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. Also note that this is a very popular destination during the Summer, so parking along Route 1A can be a nightmare. Plan on walking an additional 1 mile just to get to and from the trailhead during peak season, unless you arrive early in the day.

Dogs are not permitted on this trail.

Biking is not permitted on this trail.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
