It has nice views of the pond and mountains but I was looking down most of the time since the walk is primarily on an uneven boardwalk.

It's just a nice walk along a narrow boardwalk on the side of the pond

A good trail, kind of monotonous but shady.

Great trail which is easy for both adults and kids. Some areas are rocky and when wet can be slippery. Bring money and visit the Jordan Pond restaurant for pop overs and ice tea. Great way to finish off a great hike!
