You can walk along the lake on an easy trail - the views are simply gorgeous. We started walking not planning on going far and then just walked and walked and walked... because it was so beautiful and peaceful. Unfortunately time flew by and by the time we got back to the restaurant they were no longer serving outside, that... More

It looks amazing - Mountain cliffs on one side and peaceful water of the pond on the other. Nice sand, picnic tables, restrooms, trails next to it. It was too cold for us to swim because of the weather.

TIP: nice flat 3.2 mile hike that kids and adults will enjoy, allow 1.5 to 2 hours. After you are done with the hike, DON'T miss out the delicious "Popovers" at the restaurant!! Worth the $8 for 2!!!

Beautiful place to visit and relax. There is a restaurant and we looked at the menu and it was kinda pricy. We wanted a chowder or sandwich. But there is a gift show upstairs and they sell veggie stew or clam chowder to go for $5.95. And it was the best chowder I had in Maine! So if you're there,... More

This is a beautiful area and wonderful place to have a great meal. Set outside seating, weather permitting, but very nice. Allow some time to eat, slow to get food. Very interesting, most servers and waitresses are exchange students. Another place worth the time to see.

My wife and I just came back from Acadia and went on this hike. We had been told it was easy. We walked to the the righthand side of the lake first which had breathtaking views and was nice and flat ( not strolller accessible though). After hiking a while we came to a bridge and crossed it but then... More

Jordan Pond is a classic with a great walk you can take on very comfortable wooden timbers. Just the fact we were walking on timbers kept the kids so engaged and the views of the pond and mountains and trees are really beautiful. As you walk you have to share a tight space if people are coming the other direction... More

This pristine pond is actually the drinking water supply for the surrounding area. When not obscured by fog, there is a stunning view of the bubbles and their reflection. There is a flat 3 mile trail around the pond with some planking and step stones

We did the 3.5 mile hike around the pond with our 5 and 8 year olds. Fun fun fun but carry a lot of water because you will get tired after an hour ....it took us 2 hours to walk around the whole pond. It's easy but just very long.
