Ascent Trip Report

South Bubble Trail is a 2 mile out and back trail located near Bar Harbor, Maine that offers scenic views. The trail is rated as moderate and primarily used for hiking. If you go on the trail south of South Bubble, expect slow going with a short but difficult rock scramble.

A fun loop hike up to the top of a rocky mountain called South Bubble which has a very cool large glacial erratic left over from the last ice age. It is perched on the very edge of the steep cliff face and looks like it could be pushed off..... I bet you can't do it! The trail then descends to the north end of Jordan Pond for some great views unfortunately there is no swimming here. Then you'll follow a nice carraige road back to the trailhead.
