A rather easy trek/hike. Took roughly an hour and a half to walk around. Great photo opportunities. We had one day at Acadia and decided to go with Jordan Pond, and was pleasantly surprised. After the walk, we headed to Jordan Pond House for some delicious popovers and tea. There are more difficult walks at Acadia, and cannot wait to... More

The Jordan Pond restaurant is amazing! The food, service and above all the scenery was excellent. We ate outside and just soaked up the natural beauty... After hiking... GO HERE and chill out.

We always visit my cousin in July and one day is a walk around the pond followed by lunch. A beautiful way to spend a half day!

I gave a general review for Acadia National Park. This is only one small part of it. What made Acadia is that there is so many different segments within the park. You are going from ocean floor to mountain top. In the middle of this journey is this beautiful pond. It is stunning!

We enjoyed our quiet walk around the huge pond. The wooden plank path was perfect for the setting which is serene and rustic. We had a perfect view of the Bubble Rocks, which we did climb later, from afar. There were many people at the dining area outside enjoying the spacious accommodations.

Jordan Pond is a great place to walk, start a mountain hike, or enjoy a famous popover. Several trails branch from Jordan Pond: Penobscot Mountain to the west has a magical mountain-top lake, well-worth the hike. The "Bubbles" to the northeast provide a more challenging endeavor than the leisurely stroll around the Jordan Pond Shore Trail. A location for nature... More

Even though we were in the park on a busy weekend, not too many were walking on the path around the pond and only two were out on the lake paddle boarding. Pretty views for pictures and rocks to sit on along the way. We knew were not up to making the full circle (4 miles, I think) so just... More

I visited Jordan Pond on June 12, 2015 while on a road trip from PA. We only stopped here for a little bit but I could've stayed here a lot longer. The views are absolutely stunning like the title says! If you are a fan of beautiful views and are in the area, I'd definitely stop by!

If you spend time in Arcadia,you have to make time to at least have lunch at the famous Jordon Pond.We were here in September on a beautiful afternoon,except the temperatures were in the mid 80,s.Instead of the usual hot tea we had to settle for refreshing ice tea with fresh hot popovers.Excellent views of the meadows and the lake,a small...
