Great loop during peak Autumn

Easy walk. Half the path is a “board walk” - literally walking on halved trees to protect the nature. It is pristine! Worth taking the trip up the Bubbles while you’re there.

I second the going counter clockwise. We started the trail on the stone steps at the far end of sand beach scrambling up the rocks. The views from the head are stunning! A great hike.

Started counter clockwise and only did about half. Went up to the rock scramble and then turned around because I ran into some folks that came the other way and said the rest wasn’t that exciting. I have a 60 pound dog and he managed the planks and rocks just fine. The fall colors were awesome around early October. Nice, flat hike (other than a short section of rocks). Parking is a beast so go early and get a pass before you try to park!

Lovely lake hike with some fall calor. Parking was a bit of a wait. Mixed trail of dirt, rock, & board walk. We were a bit surprised at how long this trail took us.

The property was really crowded so we just started the walk to get away from it all. Nice easy flat trails around the whole pond. Still heavily trafficked but easy to move around folks walking at a slower pace. Beautiful views of the pond and surrounding trees. Gorgeous fall colors.

one of my favorite hikes

So pretty in the fall

An easy picturesque trail that’s great for a stroll through nature with babbling brooks and waterfalls.

Always love this trail have been coming here for over 50 years

Lots of a fun - a few spots are challenging navigating the rocks but great scenery. Our dog did really well but he was a little billy goat over the rocks

Beautiful trail, cool, crisp weather, enjoyed it immensely!

Great walk. There was a large section of plank boardwalks and a muddy section where the boardwalk will eventually continue, but other then that the walk was really beautiful and easy. I’d definitely do it again.

This was a fun trail with some great views. If you take the full loop there is also some diversity of trail - a few stretches with somewhat challenging rock scrambling and some downright wide, easy paths to relax a bit. I would recommend going counter-clockwise so that you are scrambling up the rocks instead of picking your way down. Then you get the easygoing portion at the end.

We wanted an easy, flat hike since it poured last night and we weren't going to risk any steep hikes with rocks since it would be too slick from everything we'd read. Even with intense fog, it was absolutely beautiful! The full loop tracked closer to 4 miles and had lovely changes in going from wooden platforms to boulders to dirt trail. Made for a nice, peaceful afternoon and beautiful pictures!

Easy, short hike but it’s seeing these amazing rock formations is what you’re there for!

Based on reviews, I thought this trail would NOT be enjoyable. I was pleasantly surprised by the amount of nature packed into this trail. It is super easy so it may seem boring to do the entire loop, but definitely worth doing a portion of it!

So fun. A lot of traversing over granite rocks and spectacular views!

Did the loop clockwise and ended up checking Bubble Divide (tough climb) - but ended up seeing Bubble rock and an awesome view of Jordan pond from up top.

Amazing views at every turn! A great, relatively easy hike. I’d definitely do it again.

Most excellent views. Not great for small kids. Nice break from crowds.

Agree with all the other reviews - great trail, spectacular views. My second favourite walk in the Cape Breton park!

One of my absolute favorite hikes in Acadia. Short and rather easy, the views of Sand Beach are breathtaking. If you go at low tide, you can scramble down the cliffs and observe the tide pools below. A peaceful hike surprisingly absent of others!

We actually veered more left and hiked a larger portion of the loop. The part of the trail that is not outlined red on the map here is very easy gravel area. The part that is marked red is moderate with some rock scrambling. There are some awesome views on this trail.

An easy trail with great views. The trail can be quite busy as it is close to the park entrance. Even so, there are sections where you will still experience the “alone in the wilderness” vibe. The trail is mostly flat with a few inclines and declines. I wore hiking boots but you could easily do it in sneakers or birkenstocks and you would be fine.

Difficile à battre comme point de vue! Attention en haut de bien repérer votre point d’arriver pour redescendre!

Pretty view..... kids loved it

Good views of the Bubbles and Sargent. A lot of walking on planks/boardwalks.

Nice views of the Bubbles and Sargent. Although, you are left with essentially the same view for the duration of the hike. There are some raised platform sections.
