Awesome Little Hike!

This is a favorite of our family - just enough hike to enjoy a wonderful afternoon. Beautifully kept, plenty of wildlife to enjoy.

The east side of the trail is mostly flat and easy get around. The west side has some scrambling over the rocks after you get past all of the wood walkways and is more challenging. Always a nice hike with views of the pond and bubble.

The Jordan Pond Path was a very enjoyable July hike. The path is flat and stretches 3.3 miles around the pond. It’s a good workout with great, scenic lake views.

This is a beautiful spot in the park, plus wonderful place for lunch or a snack. We enjoyed a great lunch and topped it off with thei pop overs. The pond is beautiful and the walk refreshing

The short trails around the pond have nice views and are easy walking. If you go, don't miss getting the famous popovers though!

As part of a trip we went here - it is so peaceful and serene. The scenery is gorgeous and I took several photos. Definitely not a place for noisy children and we were lucky - there were none. It is kept in immaculate condition and worth a walk to get there.

A great spot to grab some of the famous Pop-Overs with the specialty tea. If you like deep black-tea, the Jordan Pond special blend cannot be missed.

The walks along the edge of the lake are really rewarding and one doesn't have to go far to be away from the crowds around the visitor centre. With Autumn colours developing effectively and a calm day, it was easy to get great photos. It is a marvellous place.

This is a great place to pull in, have a drink and then wander right round the pond taking in all of the views as you go.

Fabulous, serene, peaceful area. Just wasn't enough time for everything. I will return next fall. Too much to see.
