wide Carrie roads, some easy climbs and quick decent. nothing technical but a fast work out

I personally loved this trail! I found it to be appropriately rated as moderate. My family, who are all very new to hiking found it a bit more challenging. They all made it to the top but struggled a bit with the minor inclines along the way to the peak of North Bubble. The views were fantastic and just below the summit is a perfect spot to pause for a picnic!

A fairly easy trail with some decent views. Relatively speaking good for most of skill levels. A good bit of roots and a little rocky terrain. My kids ranging from age 8 to 15 handled it with no problem. I carried our nine month old and a pack.

July 26: North Bubble summit was neat with nice views of Jordan Pond. I would personally skip the South Bubble and Bubble Rock although it is quick to loop around to see these. The journey to Conners was pretty with views of Eagle Lake, and it was an easy scramble up Conners. This is an iconic hike and short enough for all to just visit the Bubbles. I turned around after Conners but the trail seemed to continue. I did not realize the Bubbles Divide extension led to the shores of Jordan Pond. Go early as it gets packed.

Added portion of Eagle Lake on return from Connor’s Nubble...buggy and a little overgrown but worth it.

Just hiked up to see Bubble Rock... Cool to see the rock up close, with beautiful 360 views of the mountains.

A nice hike that’s not too rocky with amazing views all around. Took my 70 year old mom on this for her first hike so we shaved off a little distance by turning around at Conners Nubble and again at The Bubble instead of continuing the loop. Overall a great hike that is accurately rated as moderate.

Parts of this trail, thru woods and along rocky harbor are as beautiful as any hike I’ve taken. Tripping roots on path challenge me a little more than the easy designation suggests but in length and grade easy is true for my 57 years.

This is the premier vista carriage rd/trail in the Park with mid level undulating grades panoramic views if the Somes Sound, nearly 100 mile views on clear days!

Lower harbor trail is best done as an out and back. Stunningly beautiful. Skip the loop. Walking up hill through a paved campground road with nothing special to see makes the last half of this loop nothing spectacular.

nice trail but not one of the best

Gorgeous views from the summits

The view from the top is fabulous! There are two beautiful lakes to see. No guardrail, so hang onto your kids!

Great short hike. Surprise climb at the summit. Very rewarding!

Amazing views!

Surprisingly fast, and the views from the top of North bubble are amazing!

Great hike and climb with even better views, but definitely recommend hiking south to north Bubble clockwise. A pretty steep climb up south Bubble from Jordan pond, wouldn’t recommend descending unless you want a more advanced hike. A good climb up and the views are worth it.

Amazing view. Great quick hike.

This was a great hike with wonderful views. The trails were well maintained and well marked. There is a very difficult section on the southern most part of the south bubble that is NOT ok for dogs. It is very steep and narrow with some climbs that are almost impossible for any dogs. I would not recommend anyone under the age of ten or who is afraid of heights to do that section. Besides that, this was a wonderful hike I would recommend to almost everyone. It is definitely possible to do more of an out and back and skip the steep portion of the south bubble.

Highly recommend going the route of South bubble then north bubble as there are a few parts acending South bubble that would be very difficult descending. The hike overall was easy but for the aforementioned moments that were difficult for a few fit 55 year-olds.

fantastic hike. we did south bubble first and descended down the rocks and it was great fun - few shuffles on the bum down the rocks but easier than ascending. Wonderful views and easy hike for such views. The did north bubble again manageable hike and wonderful views of eagle lake. we continued to eagle lake and joined eagle lake loop (fun walk over rocks) and later the carry Jordan lake trail back to bubbles parking lot so we didn't have to go back on ourselves (easy walk back)
