A moderate ride next to the dramatic scenery of Jordan and Bubble ponds. Jordan Pond is arguably the most scenic pond in Acadia National Park, with its deep blue waters reflecting the steep cliffs of Penobscot Mountain and the graceful curves of the Bubbles. Bubble Pond is smaller and more intimate, with dramatic scenery of its own as the steep west face of Cadillac Mountain rises above its eastern shoreline. This is one of the longer rides in the carriage-road system, but its grades are never steep. For this reason, it makes a great day trip for a family with older children who are comfortable spending the day on bikes. Of course, following your ride, you can recharge your system with tea and popovers at the Jordan Pond House.
