Bubbles Trail Professional Reviews and Guides
"This short but irresistible climb goes to the summits of Jordan Pond’s distinctive mountains."
--Jerry & Marcy Monkman, Discover Acadia National Park (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"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."
--Ethan Hipple and Yemaya St. Clair, Outdoors with Kids: Maine, New Hampshire, and Vermont (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
"A short but irresistible climb to the summits of Jordan Pond’s distinctive mountains. The Bubbles are two well-rounded granite hills that stand at the northern end of Jordan Pond. Their shape and location are so distinctive, it is hard to imagine Jordan Pond without them. At an estimated 770 feet and 872 feet, they are far from being the tallest mountains in the park, but they do provide good views of the pond and the taller surrounding peaks. South Bubble is also home to perhaps the most well known rock in the state of Maine: Bubble Rock, perched precariously over the steep eastern slope of the mountain, is a perfect example of a glacial erratic."
--Ty Wivell, Discover Maine (Appalachian Mountain Club Books).
