April 28, 2019 – Jordan Pond – Maine

Yesterday we Adventured to Jordan Pond located in the Acadia National Park in Maine.  Jordan Pond was formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet during the last glacial period.  It has mountains to the west and northeast.  The loop trail around the pond is less than four miles long, and is mostly flat.  Jordan Pond is also known for the Jordan Pond House Restaurant that is open in-season, and includes outdoor seating on the lawn.

Yesterday Shadow, Wilma, and I Adventured to Jordan Pond.  This was our second Adventure to Jordan Pond as we had been there previously with Shadow, Buster, and My Mom.  I debated on this blog as I usually do not post twice on a place I have blogged about previously.  However, my previous Adventure was one of the most amazing ones we have experienced, and definitely rated 5!  So I thought in this case I would add a short little blog and share some photographs from yesterday.

We had a shorter visit to Jordan Pond yesterday, as we did not traverse the GORGEOUS trail around the Pond.  We enjoyed strolling around the trails, and the appreciating the beauty of the Pond in complete silence.  It was fun to see Jordan pond empty from visitors, and in a different time of year.  The early spring season has created brown grass, which added some unique color to the landscape.  The Pond is spectacular framed with the Bubble Mountains, so round and perfect.  My dark cell phone photographs do not even almost give this area the credit it deserves, but still wanted to share a magnificent spot to visit in Acadia National Park.  Definitely a must see stop (Rating:  5).

(You can read my initial blog on Jordan Pond by typing “Jordan Pond” in the “search box”.  On a mobile phone you can find this at the very bottom of the page, and on the computer you can find it to the right of the blog.  You might see it in the midst of some outside advertisements.)

 

ly shaped.  We 100% will be back to visit and to hike around the Pond again (Rating:  5)

  1. I completely agree with your rating. This is one of my favourite trails in Acadia National Park. I’ve hiked around Jordan Pond both times I’ve visited. It’s relatively flat and offers such great views of the Bubble Mountains.

      1. We went in the spring last year the weekend before the Memorial Day weekend and in the fall the year before the weekend after Labour Day weekend. Both times the park didn’t have too many visitors. It was quite lovely. We are going again this year the weekend before Memorial Day since it worked out so well for us last year.
