A short loop hike to the top of Bubble Mountain and the teetering boulder then return via Jordan Pond. A fun loop hike up to the top of a rocky mountain called South Bubble which has a very cool large glacial erratic left over from the last ice age. It is perched on the very edge of the steep cliff face and looks like it could be pushed off. The trail then descends to the north end of Jordan Pond for some great views. Unfortunately there is no swimming here. Then you'll follow a nice carriage road back to the trailhead.

We started this trail from jordon pond trail enterance not from the road Get ready to rock scramble! Almost all the way to the top! Challenging as in tiring but quickly you ascent to the point wear your either gonna finish or go back down, you have to maneuver yourself through a crevice and from there a quick 5 minute climb and you e reached the top :) we took bubbles divide back down which is just climbing down rocks back to jordon pond trail a fun little hike for all ages! I met an older lady at the top! She was inspiring
