Jordan Pond House Trail Professional Reviews and Guides

"This Acadia National Park hike is long on beauty and history. Start at the Jordan Pond House, where social gatherings based on popovers and tea became legendary. From there walk around Jordan Pond, as visitors have done for more than a century. Climb South Bubble for a fantastic view of Jordan Pond and Atlantic Ocean beyond. On your return trip, walk a section of the historic carriage roads that lace the park.

The hike parallels the eastern shore then reaches South Bubble Trail. Gaze back across the pond and then take the bouldery South Bubble Trail. It is a short, steep, fun scramble up the south face of South Bubble. Open onto outcrops affording magnificent views. Look back on Jordan Pond, Jordan Pond House, Seal Harbor, and the Atlantic Ocean, dotted by the Cranberry Isles. Take a side trail to view Bubble Rock, a balanced boulder seemingly about to topple."

Climbed up Jordan Cliff trail and down Pembescot Mt Trail. Fun and varied terrain on the jc trail and the exposed summit makes for a really nice descent.

This was the first trail we went on when we got to Acadia National Park. This part of the was more difficult then the first, but that was fine. The views were amazing and the trail was fun to do.

This is a nice, beautiful trail around Jordan Pond in Acadia Park. The first 1.5mi on the west side is very smooth, flat hike around the pond. There are signs indicating no swimming, there is a small beach toward the middle of the hike that seems to get some traffic, and a small wooden bridge to cross to the east side. From here, pretty much for the next 1.5 mi on the trail to the east side gets very rocky and in some spots wet (however boards have been placed down over the wet sections). My wife (not a hiker) had problems on the west side. If you are just looking for a nice stroll, you will want to turn around at the wooden bridge, past 1.5mi.
