We parked at the Jordan Pond parking lot, by the pond house. If you get there by 8AM, you can find a spot without any trouble. Anytime between 9-4, you may have to wait on a spot.

We took the Jordan Pond path over the path to Pemetic from the sound side. The hike up has a few steep parts, but it's not that difficult overall. As you get close to the top, the face opens up and you get some extraordinary views. The cool breeze that comes through the valley over Jordan Pond was refreshing and was welcome.

The views of Jordan Pond were great. At the time (July) the Jordan Cliffs trail was closed due to Peregrine falcon nesting. From our vantage point at the top of Pemetic, we could see the Peregrine falcons soaring over the water, often below us. It was quite a treat to see.

The path on the North side was a bit more strenuous, but not overly so. We were going down the North side, but I imagine coming up that way would require some effort.
