    greg watchmaker reviewed Jordan Cliffs Trail to Penobscot Mountain

    2 months ago

    Our family hiked the Jordan Cliff Trail the second week of August (just after reopening for the season). It's a great trail when the park is crowded. We saw few people along the trail as it is not near the larger towns on the island. I suggest you park your car at Jordan Pond House by 9 a.m. before it fills then hike the trails. We reserved a few months ahead for lunch at the Pond House restaurant for 3 p.m. which left us plenty of time to hike. Regarding the hike, there are a few ledges without rails and a narrow bridge but for this family that has little climbing experience, it was all very approachable

    We hiked this as a family in August and highly recommend it. There are a few exposed ledges but nothing too scary for a family that is by no means skilled. at the top, take the short loop trail to the right for great overlooks. not crowded even at high season. If you are looking for the ladders, know that they are not on the trail shown here on Alltrails. The ladders are on the trail up from the Echo Lake Beach House just east.
