The famous Jordan Pond House, at the Park Loop Rd., in Acadia
National Park, Maine, draws a big crowd with its
restaurant and gift shop -- both terrific tourist destinations -- but
the real jewel is the actual fresh water pond. Jordan Pond is a glacier
formed tarn with one of the most beautiful water and hill scenes in all
England. Walk the three mile trail around the crystal-clear pond, hike
the carriage road (good for horse carriage rides,and biking as well) or
take a short hike up the "Bubbles" where you can get a commanding view
of the pond. To keep the Pond's natural integrity, not much is
allowed here but non-motor boats like canoes and kayaks are permitted
with a launch spot at the North Parking Lot.
Of course, it's always nice to end this travel experience with some
famous, delicious Jordan Pond popovers, some afternoon tea or maybe a
more substantial meal at this full-service restaurant with memorable
Jordan Pond is a beautiful place that should definitely be on your Maine travel
Scenic Jordan Pond and the Jordan Pond Restaurant are located on the
western side of Park Loop Road in Acadia National Park on Mount Desert
