Great view at top, steep rocky incline
There is a trail on back side with parking and short walk for those that would prefer an easier walk

Absolutely beautiful trail with breathtaking views but be aware that the ladders are very difficult to access for hikers less than 5'3" tall!!! I would never recommend the narrow trail face/front side for a child under 12 though the back side would be fine for all children.

This was a fun, short hike but it should not be labeled "Easy." There is a lot of scrambling on the back side. It's not strenuous, but it is challenging. If you aren't into scrambling, I would not recommend this. And I don't know how you would get a dog down the backside.

Must do when visiting Acadia in dry weather. Because of all rocky trail, won't be possible to do it on a wet day. My 7 and 10 year olds had gr8 time !

Excellent hike- decent length for kids - trail offers a lot of different scenery; mountain to sand

Ok - simple loop around lake

Very fun, moderately difficult trail. Amazing views at the top

Gr8 for biking. Not very exciting for walking. Pretty good though.

This was a great hike! It was the only hike during our recent visit that had sunshine. It is rated well as a moderate hike. There are a few stairs that will raise your heart rate quickly and you need to watch for the blue markings and cairns in some areas as the path is woodsy and rocky in spots..best to access at the Sieur de Monts Springs. A lot of trails come together or branch off at this location.

fun trail with a great view. would recommend parking at jordan pond and hiking up from there rather than the bubble parking lot. the trail from jordan pond had some climbing and scrambling and was a lot of fun but would be more difficult/ less fun going down that direction. well worth doing!

Try to park at the small parking lot before the main parking lot for this trail (if you can't, park at the main parking lot and hike down the road to it)! Hike down the hill and you will be greeted by Jordan Pond. There will be two trails: one bordering the lake and one going up the mountain. Definitely take the trail going up Bubble Mountain!! The trail will not start off steep, but it will when you get closer to the top! You will climb up iron rungs on this and the views are amazing!! Not for hikers with a fear of heights. My two daughters (8 and 9 years old) completed this trail and loved it!! The views are breathtaking!!! Blueberries galore!!!

Very fun, but a little more difficult than "moderate" in my opinion. Very rocky, comes with amazing views.
