Nice and easy quick hike! Very fast in and out, and it wasn’t too busy. (Thoigh it was completely dogged in when I went so that may be why)

Super fun and quick trail. About 20 minutes to the top, all uphill with a few rock scrambles. Bring a lunch and have a picnic at the top, great spot for that.

Short and sweet. Not too challenging; great for young kids and dogs. Gorgeous views at the top.

Short easy hike with good views. Foggy when we went so not that great. The balancing rock was pretty cool

Non-stop views!! It would be an easy hike up and back down, but I would recommend extending the hike into a loop by continuing on the North Bubble trail down the mountain and up Connor's Nubble. This trail is more challenging (though still moderate, a much smaller peak) and offers a diversity of terrains and views. You'll end up along Eagles Lake and finish through a beautiful marsh and lush forested area before arriving back at the bubble parking lot. One of my favorite Acadia hikes! The whole loop will take about 2-3 hours

North bubble is definitely the better of the two. That said, you’re adding a half mile to do both, so it’s worth doing both. The north provides amazing vistas of the Jordan Pond.

Did both Bubbles, chose North Bubble first as it was shorter. Definitely a climb but quick and beautiful views of Jordan Pond and Cadillac Mountain along the way. Our dog enjoyed the hike as well. The summit area is smaller than at South Bubble.

Did this then continued along the Bubbles Trail to Conners Nubble and looped back along Eagle Lake for a really wonderful 2.5 hour loop. Stunning views over Jordan Pond and Eagle Lake.

Loved this trail, not too strenuous. This view is even sweeter than South Bubble! Great hike for kids also.

Good view of Jordan Pound and Jordan Pond House. Bubble rock looks like it should fall off the edge which is fun to see. Rock scramble on south side is a bit more challenging.

Up South Bubble, across to North Bubble, and then back down the Bubbles Divide. South Bubble is more difficult than North, but great views from both. Short and relatively easy.

Following the Ridge trail North from the summit yields great views for most of the journey.
