“challenging but nice”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We made this hike actually in 2011, not 2012 but I doubt much has changed. The view is wonderful. We're an older couple so for us the hike was a little challenging but well worth the effort.

“Great view, moderate hike”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

The view of bubble rock from the top is amazing. The hike is not too difficult, but can get a little tough in some spots. As with all hikes, it feels great to get to the summit, and the view makes it even better. This was the easiest hike that we did; children can easily do this hike, but if left to their own, they may get hurt, so keep them close.

“Beautiful views”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 10, 2012

The trail is easy to follow. Suitable for all hiking skill levels. Children friendly, but keep them close. There are spots they should not be running around.

“Easiest "hike" in the park.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

The main trail up South Bubble to Bubble Rock is probably the easiest trail with some height in the park, but there's a steeper, more challenging trail from Jordan Pond. In any case, neither is very long. Getting your photo at Bubble Rock is a must.

“Unbelievable Views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 21, 2012

Can't beat looking out over the forests and rocks as well as Jordan Pond all the way to the ocean. Quiet and peaceful. Climb is a bit steep but only about .5 miles. Worth the effort!!
