Bubble & Jordan Ponds Path Professional Reviews and Guides

"Bubble Pond is a small, coldwater pond that receives annual stockings of brook trout. Maximum depth is 39 feet, in the middle of the pond. Shoreline depths run from 5 to 15 feet. There is no launch site at Bubble Pond, but you can easily carry a canoe the short distance from the parking area to the water.

This site has a minimum length limit of 8 inches and a 2-fish daily limit on brook trout. Bubble Pond is easily fished from shore, as well. One of Acadia’s famous carriage roads bounds the entire western side of the pond. This easy access makes Bubble Pond a great family destination. Key Species: brook trout."

"Part of a historic late-1800s loop trail connecting Bubble and Jordan Ponds, this hike harkens back to a different way of life and preferred mode of transportation, before carriage road and Park Loop Road construction impacted the route. You can still do a grand tour on foot from pond to pond, but you now have the option of hopping the Island Explorer bus back to the Jordan Pond House for afternoon tea and popovers.

Once a main thoroughfare in the footpath system connecting Bar Harbor to Jordan Pond to Seal Harbor, part of this trail was supplanted when John D. Rockefeller Jr. built the carriage road along Bubble Pond in the late 1920s. Now that the park service is restoring some of the old routes and trail names, you can re-create the original pond-to-pond experience by walking along a portion of the carriage road and following a section of what used to be known as the Pond Trail as it gets returned to its historic name of Bubble & Jordan Ponds Path."
