Enjoy the seacoast by climbing or walking some beautiful trails in the town of York, Maine

                                        Welcome to the coastline beauty of York, Maine.  

Come experience one of the many walking/hiking trails that our home town of York has to offer.            

The York Harbor Cliff Walk is an absolutely gorgeous 1.0 mile round trip walk.  The walking trail at times feels a bit antique and based on the speed of your walk, the average time it takes to complete the trail (round trip) is roughly 20 minutes. The trail consists of poured concrete over stone (a bit cracked) and a narrow dirt path lined with flowering shrubs and poison ivy (watch out!). You’re never far from the surf while you walk underneath private coastal homes.

There are a few stone staircases, and a few short inclines. When you’re not on concrete, you’re walking on a fairly uneven surface.

Along the way you will be able to hear, smell and experience the Atlantic Ocean and perhaps the crashing of the waves upon the rocks, or someone fishing from the shore.  The path ends at a pebbly beach, where you can walk down the stone steps. It’s probably best to turn around and return the way you came from, as the path closely borders private residences, so please remain on the walkway and be respectful of neighboring properties.   

NOTE:  Pets are not allowed and you are advised to please stick to the path. Be aware there is in sections of the path there is poison ivy, so it would be in your own best interest to wear long pants

Directions: Parking can be a difficult during summertime days. There are a lot of 2-hour spaces on the side of York Street, starting at Hartley Mason Park and continuing all the way to Norwood Farms Road.
