I did this trail with my almost 3 year old today. It was an awesome walk! We both loved the switch-ups the trail offers—it goes from fairly smooth, flat surface, to a very long wood plank/boardwalk, to large boulders. It also has some neat bridges, beautiful Mountain views and the sound of loons! Great, fun walk for families.

If you're here and want a 2-3 hour comprehensive bubbles and Jordon pond route, start at Pond south point near the restaurant, hike up the west side of the lake, turn right at the north point, hike up to the intersection, go left to see north bubble (its further than you think but you'll know when youre there), return back and see south bubble, then return back down the trail past South bubble and continue back to your var via jordon pond path east side. Not too strenuous at all, very great morning/afternoon loop. You'll see it all w/ a good workout.

I and my friend started this hike at 2 am so that we could reach summit by sunrise. We were so scared because there was no one else on that trail and it was a dark night. It was fun in a way that we walked so fast that we reached an hour before the sunrise. Watching sunrise was worth it though. I found getting down was tougher that climbing actually.

Map is not accurate. Trail has been re-routed

This is a great hike that gives you a taste of some rock scrambling that is typical of Acadia hikes yet it is not to long nor a great elevation gain. Recommend good shoes or hiking boots The views are spectacular. We did this before the park loop road opened up so encountered no people. However, due to its popularity, it may be difficult to social distance as crowds return to Acadia.

Wouldnt consider this a "hike" but the view of the ocean and coastline from the rocks is awesome. great place to spend a little time soaking in the scenery and hear the waves crash!

From Echo Lake-4 ladders reach the summit. Dry conditions-otherwise could be slick. I will bring my daughter next trip. She’s young, but capable and confident enough to climb and descend the ladders. Great time-beautiful place!

Is the trial open ?

The Little Harbor Brook portion of this trail is incredible. The brook is beautiful and the trail is well maintained. This brook is one of the clearest I have ever seen in Maine. We hiked up to where it connects to the Asticou and Jordan Pond Path. We turned left. That is also an incredible path, possibly one of the most well-made I have ever seen. The fine gravel path is wide enough for two people side by side, and there are full granite steps on inclines. We then took the map house trail and the Charles Savage Trail up and over Eliot Mountain. There is a trail from the map house to the Charles Savage trail, but it was very hard to follow and I wouldn’t recommend it. Simply follow the little dirt road in that direction, and eventually you will see the marker for the Eliot Mountain on your left. Overall a great hike.

Super fun trail, my wife and I hiked it with our 60lb Georgia Brown Dog John Henry. We had a blast the trail is really well marked and has some really fun boulder scrambles along the way. There are also lots of the classic Acadia granite steps along the way. There was one small section John Henry struggled going down, but he made it with some coaching. It clocked in at 3.36 miles for us. We went clockwise, but I think either direction would be just as fun. This is one of my favorite mountain climbs I’ve done in Acadia, and it was lightly traveled today (maybe due to very few ppl being around because of the pandemic).

This was a super hike done with family. Beautiful, beautiful views. So serene. We came down Razor Back and that proved to be a great decision! Cannot wait to hike it again.

Extremely nice hike and trail. Great views at the top especially with the fire tower

Came out during the COVID-19 shutdown knowing that Acadia National Park is closed, but this area would be open (to park a vehicle) and hike along the rocks or take a very easy trail. At first I was only going to hike the rocky coastline, but a wild turkey had me follow him on the trail. He eventually went into the woods, but I kept on walking and saw a mother duck with her ducklings in a shallow pond, some bees pollinating blossoms, plus much more. If I had more time, and if restrooms were open, I probably would have taken the other path towards Precipice or even further. Either way, you will definitely enjoy this trail for an easy day's walk.

Make sure you go at high tide if you want to actually experience the thunder hole. Still a beautiful view, but we missed that.

Beautiful views! We found a waterfall off of the trail for a peaceful break near the bottom of Acadia Mountain. You can see the islands off of Bar Harbor from the top in the sky-blue water. Kind of a tough trail for families, but perfect for a pair as the trails can get narrow and rocky at times. Totally worth it!

Beautiful trail. Some spots have beautiful views. Very rocky and there’s some parts you’ll need to climb. It was a nice trail though the markings could be a bit more obvious.

I loved this trail - perfect on an overcast morning. Brings out the pink in the rocks. Very calming and beautiful. Could easily spend ours relaxing on this trail.
