Terriric shaded rock scrambling without exposure. There's a ravine with some wooden ladders that runs a couple hundred feet as an alternate trail to the slanted flat rocks. Views of Jordan pond, Eagle lake, Mt Penobscot, and southern islands and the Atlantic are pristine. Starting from Jordan pond we took the Jordan pond path north, Bubbles trail north, then Pemetic northeest and back down the South ridge trail to return to the parking lot. 6.5 miles and about 5 hours.
