Watch the Sunrise from the Marginal Way Trail

Perkin's Cove Public Parking - Search Nearby - Added by Jake Sells

Watch the sunrise and walk a popular locally known paved path, Marginal Way. Enjoy the sights of the sun rising over the cove and see fisherman and lobster boats leave port for the day.

Park near the Oceanside Oarweed restaurant or any other public spots on the cove's peninsula. Marginal Way is a nicely paved 1.25 mile out and back path, perfect for a morning walk or run on the rocky coast.

Catch fishermen, lobstermen, and recreational boats as they leave, or choose to sit at one of the several benches along the way or enjoy the local crowd as the sun comes up.
