Kids will delight in the huge, precariously perched boulder and the surrounding panoramas of the Gulf of Maine and Jordan Pond. Rising above the north end of Jordan Pond, North Bubble and South Bubble look just the way they sound—two perfect bubbles of pink granite symmetrically rising from the earth. While more experienced hikers prepared for a longer hike can easily summit both in a day (see Plan B), start with the South Bubble. It is slightly smaller and more accessible, with arguably greater views and features at the summit.
