We stopped and took a hike along the pond. Very quiet, calm and peaceful. A nice place to admire nature. We were alone and just took our time to enjoy.

For those that love rugged hiking, this is your destination. We set out on a venture to encircle the entire Jordan Pond, with three youngsters along. Little did we realize, the western side of Jordan Pond has some rather challenging terrain. The first leg of the trail has horizontal timbers laid like tiny bridges, over damp brush. The other portion... More

The Jordan Pond Trail is an easy hike along the shore of Jordan Pond. Our family of 4 (ages 10,12) loved our 3 miles along the shore of the water. We took the loop so that we ended at The Jordan Pond House. Our hike started on the side with the well-groomed small gravel path and ended on the side... More

My husband and I visited Jordan Pond during our trip to Acadia in June 2016. What a gorgeous area this is! The Bubble Mountains and Jordan Pond complement each other perfectly and make for great photos. The water in Jordan Pond is crystal clear - pretty amazing. We walked the 3-ish mile path around the pond, including the bog walk.... More

This was a great hike around the pond, suitable for all ages. Hiking boots are highly recommended for this. Don't recommend jogging here as we were almost pushed off the logs by a jogger! and we had young children with us. She was very rude!

Hardly a person near when I trekked to this beauty. May is the time to go! Not many tourists OR bugs! Such a gem to see. Clearest water and beautiful views.

Beautiful mountain pond in Acadia National Park that is a wonderful stop. Whether hiking, biking, coming by car or taking the local bus - nice place to visit with a very nice restaurant and wonderful scenery. We biked here from the Duck Road access and stopped and enjoyed a very nice lunch. Can get quite busy at lunchtime at the... More

We loved our hike around Jordan Pond. It was a pretty easy hike, and enjoyed the rocky end of the pond too. Added a little challenge to the hike. The scenery to view was lovely. We also hiked up to the summit to Bubble Rock from Jordan Pond. That was fun, but quite challenging at the summit. We took the... More

Beautiful hike, takes a couple of hours, max. Nothing too difficult, good hiking shoes a plus. Be careful on the split log paths if they are wet. Loons, water birds and other wildlife present.

A great hike around the pond. 3 miles I believe. Most easy. One side had more difficult rocks and a bogwalk, disabilities could have trouble. We stopped n had lunch on a rock and soaked in the beauty.
