On this hike you will have expansive views of Jordan Pond, the Bubbles, and Jordan Cliffs, as well as a chance to glimpse a colorful merganser duck or watch kayakers. The graded gravel path on the east side of the pond is particularly easy, and an amazing 4,000 feet of log bridges on the west side help smooth the way over what would otherwise be a potentially wet, rocky, and root-filled trail.

This was the first trail we went on when we got to Acadia National Park. This part of the was more difficult then the first, but that was fine. The views were amazing and the trail was fun to do.

This is a nice, beautiful trail around Jordan Pond in Acadia Park. The first 1.5mi on the west side is very smooth, flat hike around the pond. There are signs indicating no swimming, there is a small beach toward the middle of the hike that seems to get some traffic, and a small wooden bridge to cross to the east side. From here, pretty much for the next 1.5 mi on the trail to the east side gets very rocky and in some spots wet (however boards have been placed down over the wet sections). My wife (not a hiker) had problems on the west side. If you are just looking for a nice stroll, you will want to turn around at the wooden bridge, past 1.5mi.
