Beautiful view at the top!!! I took my 2 year old on my back and it was kind of sketchy because it was very steep and you almost had to rock climb at points but it was fun and the view was amazing

The Nubble is the unsung hero of this trail! The view from the top taking in Eagle Lake is stunning. Loved it!

From Jordan pond a straight uphill scramble to south bubble . Fun but very tough. Would not recommend going down this way. Some narrow spots to squeeze through, climbing up rocks hands and feet. Easier hike over to North bubble, and toward Connors nubble, took carriage road back to Jordan lake carry trail to Bubble parking lot.

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!

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.

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.

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.
