Like most of the water bodies on Mount Desert Island, Jordan Pond is long and narrow. Running north-to-south, the pond is a classic reminder of the glacial history that shaped the landscape. In addition to its bright blue waters and mountain scenery, Jordan Pond is an ideal location to begin any number of loop hikes, from flat 1-mile nature trails to all-day adventures over the highest elevations in the park. The following half-day journey showcases the best of Jordan Pond and opens the door to limitless future travels.
