Great easy walk. I took my dog and we ambled along comfortably. Overcast and windy but beautiful. Temperature in the high 30’s low 40’s. Saw just a few other people. Ahhh the beauty of Acadia off season! Highly recommend. Walk around eagle lake but really mostly out of sight until the last mile.

phone died halfway through recording, but trail was easy and primarily flat.

Easy carriage road trail - plenty of ducks in the ponds. Light snow flurries add a touch of magic. Nice rest from the rock scrambles elsewhere in Acadia.

Just a wooded path basically. No views

Well-kept carraige road trail with nice views and a challenging ride

Nice wide trail with great views of Eagle Lake and a lot of other hiking trails off of it for more options. Also a great biking option!

Fun easy walk. Gorgeous in the fall.

If you go from Hulls visitor center to this trail you will have a challenging ascent so much so many people walking their bike up. Beautiful stretches of forest, water etc.

This is important: If you follow the "Around the Mt." signs, you will walk only 12.8 Miles. It is also called the Carriage road, The trailhead is just behind the Jordan Pond House. PM me for any question.

If you go counterclockwise there are a few big hills. It’s easier the other way. The trail is nice and wide but there is one section with the pond view. So if you’re looking for scenic, it’s not here.

It was an easy hike, with perfect weather and great views of the pond and surrounding marshes. Leaves were already changing.

a lovely carriage road.

Biked this trail with our 2.5 yo and 6 month old. Hilly but not any bad ascents. Nice places to stop and let our 2.5 yo explore. Pretty views of ponds.

A roughly 5 mile back-and-forth with a slight descent to start (approx. 300 ft.) and the reverse back. Gravel path the whole way (seemingly an old carriage road that's become overgrown in parts). The trail is clear but no blazes.

Rented bikes in Bar Harbor and then biked from the town past Eagle Lake to the Around The Mountain carriage road. Returned via Jordan Pond House and Bubble Pond. It’s 25 miles and lots of uphill with ups and downs in the middle. Total ascent is 1800 ft. Spectacular views all along the way!

The current description of this trail is misleading. The Eagle Lake Trail is NOT the Eagle Lake Carriage road loop around Eagle Lake. The Eagle Lake Trial is a 1.8 mile trail that comes off the carriage road at the Bubble trail that heads up to Conners Nubble. The proper Eagle Lake Trail while appearing to be an easy trail I would submit is a moderately challenging trail. It is an intense bouldering experience. While to ANP trial map does not suggest any significant elevation gain - do not be fooled. This trail is almost 2 miles of boulder and at times challenging bouldering. I would strongly caution against bringing children or dogs on this trail. I have hiked most if Acadia with my dogs - labs, Golden Retriever and Great Dane - and this was the one time that I was regretting not stopping and getting off this trail.

Fine jaunt through the woods to a beautiful area

Six mile bike, run and walking trail. Elevations throughout. Gorgeous scenery and views of Eagle Lake.

Beautiful walk. Stroller friendly which is always a plus. Saw other walkers and quiet a few bikers but overall is wasn’t too busy.

Excellent easy walking and biking trail Our favorite.

Nice long hike with great views along the way. Bridge and waterfall were a plus!

First trail we hiked when my husband and I arrived at Acadia. Eagle Lake is absolutely gorgeous! Wish the hike was more trail-like rather than mostly carriage road, but we found a few spots that trailed along the lake and that was awesome.

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

Good way to leave camp and see the shore. I wouldn't walk it as a specific outing, but not bad for a camp departure.

This was a long walk with not really any views.

I hiked this trail few days ago. I am not in great shape but I exercise regularly. This trail was hard. We were told slow ascent if you go clockwise (left at trailhead) and steeper ascent if you go counterclockwise around the lake. Both had a lot of hills and I felt so sorry for the families w smaller children on bikes and pushing strollers. It took us a little over two hours and I was drenched in sweat. Take water. Great workout and I’m glad I did it, but won’t do it again just due to the inclines. 55 yo
