The hike around Jordan Pond is absolutely beautiful and even more stunning during peak fall colors. It is an easy-moderate hike, with about half of it on a boardwalk through the woods near the shore.

Definitely the highlight of Acadia. A super impressive trail. Try going around the entire pond. You’ll want at least 3 hours. The elevated paths with wood underneath are particularly impressive. There is evidence of beavers everywhere.
A top personal location within the stunning beauty of rugged Acadia...! A must see destination for every outdoor enthusiast. Bring a picnic and a book and spend several hours here. Not to be missed!
