The twin rounded peaks of South and North Bubbles rim the long and lovely Jordan Pond. From a vantage point high up the side of a mountain, gaze out to unobstructed views of Somes Sound. Cross seven stone bridges. This is the Around Mountain Loop. The 11.0-mile circuit is the longest loop in the carriage road system and offers skiers exciting vistas along with a workout. On this circuit, skiers get a chance to see the impact that the wind and sun have on the carriage roads. Be prepared for windswept snows as the carriage road ascends the mountains. There is more than one mountain on this Around Mountain Loop. The most prominent peaks are the 1,323-foot Sargent, 1,194-foot Penobscot, and 941-foot Parkman. Surface quality: Skier tracked though portions are groomed by volunteers at times.
