The Jordan Pond Loop Trail is a scenic 3.6 mile hike in Acadia National Park, near Bar Harbor, Maine that leads you around the shores of Jordan Pond. Jordan Pond was formed by an ancient glacier known as the Wisconsin Ice Sheet thousands of years ago. On its western side is Penobscot Mountain that sits high above Jordan Pond at 1,181 feet. And on its northeast shores, you'll find the two iconic mountains known as "The Bubbles".

The hike is mostly flat and the trail switches between wooden planks, paved surfaces, and gravel. There are various points on along the trail where you can hop off the trail and onto the pond's shores - especially the northern shores, this is more possible. This is one of the best and most popular hikes at Acadia National Park.

Before you leave...

MyHikes is an independently-owned platform aimed to make exploring public trails easier for everyone. MyHikes has no investors, no shareholders, no goal to profit, and is owned and operated by one person. We share trails on the interwebs for the fun of it and put a ton of time tracking, writing about, and publishing new trails each month.

But it takes a lot of money, time, and effort (including espresso shots) to run MyHikes. Our content is and always will be free to use, including interactive trail maps and elevation charts, pictures from the trail, and dope points-of-interest like vistas, overlooks, waterfalls, backcountry campsites, abandoned structures, and more...

So we simply ask that if you find our content helpful or useful when planning your outdoor excursions that you consider making a small donation to help keep our lights on.

You can become a Supporter* (*MyHikes account required) when donating to unlock perks. Or you can Donate without an account.

Either way, thanks for checking out MyHikes and have a great hike!
