Great hike. started at the Bubble parking lot headed south to Jordan Pond the went up the south of the south bubble. Fun little scramble with a wedge toward the top. Wedge was a bit of a squeeze even for a tall skinny guy like me but worth the view. Headed to North bubble which is only an extra .3 miles up.

We spoke with the locals and in the summer the bubble gets over crowded. Head early to this hike and the bee hive. Parking at the bubble can get tough, I can tell.

Cool and cloudy to start but can't beat the views in whatever weather. Started up North Bubble from BR parking lot, followed northward to Connors Nubble; continue the loop by descending north side of Connors Nubble and return via Eagle Lake trail and carry trail. Some fun rock scrambling along shore of Eagle Lake.

Beautiful views and a great quick hike. Did this with my 6 year old son, 62 year old mother and 1 year old dog. Everyone loved it though for more experienced hikers it is quite easy.

Good hike with good payoff as views are sweet. Did this couple days ago with group of kids aged 5-11. Moderate elevation gain with mostly wood supported stairs and gaining to some granite steps to easy flat trail. Make sure to check out Balance Rock at too.

Not a lot of effort for an amazing payoff. The views from the Bubbles are spectacular. I got an early start and had the added benefit of being on the summit of South Bubble by myself...and with the striking image of a thunderstorm passing just to the south of the Cranberry Islands. Be sure not to miss Bubble Rock on top of South Bubble. This is definitely a can't miss for Acadia NP!
