Such a bueatiful trail. easy. Some harder trails branching off, like bubbles and Jordan cliffs, but it if you want a bueatiful flat walk in Acadia, this is your trail.

Great trail! Good challenge

This was a beautiful trail, but I wouldn’t rate it as easy. Depending on which way you took, the first part of the trail is flat. The second part has you walking over rocks and on a wooden boardwalk. Would not recommend that section on a wet day.

This was such a fun hike to take our time on. The views were beautiful and the trail was well marked!

Walked up the Divide trail from the parking area to the top of South Bubble, then down the Bubbles Trail to Jordan pond. The descent from the Bubble is a little intimidating, but not overly difficult, and the views are well worth it (I can definitely see that having shorter legs might make it more difficult though).

Nice little walk

Great hike! We enjoyed it and so did our dog!

Rocky trail with lots of uneven ground. Tough on the knees! The peak of St. Sauveur isn’t particularly breathtaking, but once you start walking along Valley Peak it’s pretty much an incredible view the whole stretch. The little detour for the waterfall is totally worth it, you can easily climb next to or to the top of it and sit in the shade to enjoy the view. We cheated and walked back down Man O’ War, which is a flat path (old access road?). All in all a pleasant hike through woods, steady incline, and beautiful views.

Short hike with amazing views. There’s several options to follow for a longer hike. Lots of fun stretches over rock with ocean views.

I love this Trail and my dogs are so happy here. Great views and much serenity. Just a nice easy hike with so much to offer.

Nice little trail along the waters edge. Not very hard or strenuous. A lot of the fun looking parts near the cliffs were closed off for habitat restoration. I can’t complain about that.

Good trail with lots of nice views. Mostly a lot of stair climbing which gets somewhat tiring. Would recommend as a nice small jaunt from the nature center.

Wow! Incredible views, a bit difficult in places, but totally worth it!

Very nice level walk with some rocks & roots. Great views of Jordan’s pond and was not crowded on a weekday in early May.

Very easy but extremely beautiful, please respect the park rules ( no swimming) and stop at the restaurant after for some delicious pop overs, you'll thank me later!

Pretty popular walk. I guess the appeal is walking across on low tide. Doesn't really do much for me. Views from the high point on the island are alright.

I like how the website says that this is the #2 of 133 trails in Acadia, but that it is "lightly trafficked". It is pretty busy. Parking can be tough on the trailhead on the park loop road. I think the views are nice, but I know a lot of people who hate on this trail.

Definitely not 8 miles. When you're not right next to the road, this is a pleasant little stroll. The elevation gain is also off for this hike. I'd suggest parking on Kebo STreet instead of Main street if you wanted to hike this.

Good if you have no other options. Can cut over on Murphy Lane to the Precipice trail and avoid some of the parking issues at Precipice trailhead. But the Schooner head path parallels the road and is unremarkable.

Parking is tough at this trailhead. Best to get there early in the morning. Is a nice alternative to sunrise on Cadillac.

Mostly just a way from the campground to the cove. Prettty lightly trafficked.

Pretty easy hike with decent views on clear days. Parking is usually no issue at the trailhead shown here.

Did the trail counter-clockwise. The part of the trail where you leave the lake and start going up was so buggy. Def not my favorite, but worth doing if you have several days in the area.

Pleasant walk around the lake with lake views almost all along the way.

Not really much to see on this stretch of trail.

Great hike with some very nice views. Fun short hike for my 8, 11, 12 year olds as well as my wife and I. Take your camera for some very nice shots.

I hiked North Ridge Trail in college with my friend. Prior to hiking North Ridge Trail I had only done very short hikes. You have beautiful views of the ocean for most of the hike and the view from the top is wonderful. The top can get kind of crowded with all the people that drive up but I think the hike is something everyone should do! My other friend and I are planning to go this year!

My wife and I did this trail for the first time and loved it! Easy trail with great views!

Trail was well blazed, in great shape, not too difficult, and a ton of fun! We did the Cadallic Canyon route and that added a lot of value to the hike.
