It’s but a short woods walk from the Jordan Pond House along the meandering Jordan Stream to the highlight of this trail: a carriage road bridge made entirely of cobblestones rather than the cut granite of other bridges in the carriage road system. You may have company as you stop to admire the Cobblestone Bridge—this is a popular place for horse-drawn carriages to let off passengers. Even in its short distance, the Jordan Stream Path provides hikers with a historical flavor. About one hundred years ago, the trail was laid out by the Seal Harbor Village Improvement Association as a scenic connector between the village and Jordan Pond. In the 1700s and earlier, it may have been part of a Native American canoe carry trail connecting Jordan Pond to the ocean.
