Worth the hike- from various Bubble trails. The trail from Jordan Pond are a good access point. North and South Bubble options. South Bubble was high elevation and lots of rocks to maneuver but not a long way up (bubble rock elev 800 ft or so). Great for photos and views of Jordan Pond etc.

We walked up to Bubble rock in the afternoon, on a bright and sunny and windy day. Not knowing which Rock had the falling rock south or north we hike up to the south rock. Hiking to the top was average up hill hike. When we got to the top following the trail and markings we could not find the... More

This is about a 1 mile round trip hike which is not very difficult. Most of the hike is stairs. Very enjoyable and fun to see the rock once at the top. Great place for pictures. Parking is limited so we hiked at the end of the day and were the only ones up on top, very cool.

Husband and I need to get in better shape, but we would consider this a strenuous hike. Very rocky and steep at times. But we made it and it was worth it. Beautiful views at the top and cool balanced rock. Wear proper hiking shoes. You need some grip for slippery, steep rocks.

Even though we did this hike on a holiday weekend Sunday and it being such a popular spot, the trail was not that busy and there were only 2 sets of families when we reached the rock. However, parking at the Bubble Rock lot is very limited so unless you get there early, it's nearly impossible. The next closest lot... More

If you find yourself here, you will undoubtedly attempt to push the large glacial erratic over the edge. And much to your dismay, it will not budge! Acadia is full of geological awesomeness and this is a great example of the unique landscape. The hike (from Jordan Pond) is a bit steep for a while but nothing incredible difficult and... More

Not an easy hike, especially when you already have hiked 10 miles that day. But worth the end result. The rock is amazing that it doesn't fall off, but the view is stunning. Possibly the prettiest of the trees and valley. There is a lot of rocks to climb over, not just a flat path.

We were walking around Jordan Pond and noticed a trail to Bubble Rock (South Bubble). Since we were not able to find parking at the Bubble Rock lot, we decided to go for it. It was a bit of a climb that was occasionally steep and challenging. Our children managed to make it to the top. It was well-worth the... More
