It was a great hike. Nice steep incline but not to difficult for kids or people out of shape. The views were wicked nice and I would recommend to walk a bit further and go to the second view point. It was well marked and easy to follow the paths. It didn't take that long and the views were well worth it. I would definitely hike it again!

Jordan Pond Shore Trail
by

6 Completed 1 Reviews

Mostly easy, level trail around the large Jordan Pond, which is a public water supply (no swimming). Easily accessible from the Park Loop Road, ample parking in North Lot. If you turn right at the trailhead, you'll follow the trail around the east side of the pond, going counterclockwise. In the morning you'll be in shade here with the sun on the hills to the west.

The east side is mostly graded gravel, generally 2+ persons wide. At the far end of the pond, you'll reach a wooden arch bridge at 1.6 miles, the halfway point. Continue over the bridge and around the west side. Here, you'll encounter some boulder fields that require careful footwork but no hand scrambling. It's easy to see the path through each of these boulder fields.

Beyond that, you'll reach a very long wooden plank section that keeps you above the bog. I did this trail on a dry, sunny morning but the boulders and the planks might be tricky in the wet.

You'll have plenty of shade as the trail stays mostly under the tree canopy, but also get really nice views of the water, the Bubbles to the NE and Penobscot Mtn. to the west.
