Jordan Pond

Jordan Pond may be found in Maine’s Acadia National Park. The pond has a maximum depth of around 150 feet, is roughly 3 miles long, and half a mile broad. It is part of the watershed for Jordan Pond and is fed by a number of small streams.

The Jordan Pond House, a popular location for dining and admiring the breathtaking views of the pond and the nearby mountains, is one of the primary draws of Jordan Pond. Popovers, a sort of little, hollow pastry typically served with butter and jelly, are a specialty of the eatery.

Hiking is another well-liked pastime at Jordan Pond. A 3.5-mile walk called the Jordan Pond Path circles the pond and provides magnificent vistas and the opportunity to see local animals such as beavers, moose, and deer. The trail is manageable and may be completed in a few hours. There are a number of additional routes nearby that offer more difficult hiking alternatives.

Given that the waters are often calm and the environment is stunning, Jordan Pond is also a well-liked location for canoeing and kayaking. Visitors may hire canoes, kayaks, and stand-up paddleboards at Jordan Pond Boat Rentals.

Swimming and picnicking are both excellent activities at Jordan Pond. In the summer, the water is often warm enough for swimming, and there are a number of picnic sites around the pond where guests may unwind and take in the landscape.

Both locals and visitors alike like Jordan Pond, and it’s not hard to understand why. It is a must-see for anyone going to Acadia National Park because of how well its natural beauty, recreation options, and delicious food all go together.
