Breathtaking View

Made a pit stop along the coast to see this place. Very scenic with amazing views of the ocean. Very easy to get too. Beautiful homes along the way as well.

Out of season ample parking areas and places to sit and enjoy view. Favorite locale - spouting rock in foreground of Bush compound. Quiet, quiet, quiet!

On way to see the George Bush home. It's located across the Walker point camp ground. Has an anchor. Stating what it is.

Relatively easy walk and the scenery is beautiful. Bring your camera. It's nice to see at low or high tide. There are benches in many places to take a break or sit and read.

Parson’s Way is a trail along the rocks on Ocean Avenue that provides a great distant view of Bush compound on Walker’s Point across the water. It was accessible from the pull-off. Near the top of the trail is an anchor and a marker for the first Pres. Bush, a/k/a #41. It had a bench nearby. I thought it was... More

You can take a beautiful walk here anytime even in the rain. It's prettier watching the waves in a storm and much less crowded. And if it gets too bad,duck in to a nearby hotel for drink.

Get up early a walk to the Bush place. Other than Acadia the most beautiful walk in Maine. Never did get that invite for breakfast with 41.

This guy donated this exquisite piece of the Maine coast In 1944 and are we better for his generosity. We parked at the beach and walked towards Walker Point, which would be about 1.5 miles. There are many stops along the way and the mansions you'll encounter are breath taking. Benches along the route allow you to sit and take... More

Had fun climbing on the various rock formations. You can see the Bush compound from here. There's an anchor dedicated to President Bush here. Nice views of the water and surrounding area. Parking is tough though. Only a few parking spots available but you should only have to wait a short while for one to open up as there isnt... More
