Spring Trail Professional Review and Guide
"The Spring Trail is part of the rich history of the Jordan Pond House. The trail was laid out and built by Thomas McIntire, who began serving tourists at the Jordan Pond House in 1895. The trail’s ease of access from the Jordan Pond House and its open views make this a well-frequented way up Penobscot Mountain.The Spring Trail is the park’s most popular way to climb Penobscot Mountain, a peak with unbeatable views. The hike goes up the steep southeast side of the mountain, with some boulder climbing and narrow crevices making it especially challenging, and takes you by a stone bench with views of Jordan Pond below."
