|About these ratings|
Both the Jordan Pond Nature Trail (an easy stroll through the evergreens) and the Jordan Pond Shore Trail (a more difficult trek along the rocky coast) spill out to the picturesque and pleasant respite that is Jordan Pond. Pick your poison (or trail) and at the end you'll find crystal-clear waters that mirror the surrounding mountains. The nearby Jordan Pond House Restaurant serves soups, lobster rolls and their signature popovers and tea. Though TripAdvisor users give the restaurant mixed reviews, including raves about the "to-die-for popovers" and rants about overly high prices. Consider skipping the popovers and packing a picnic to eat along the pond banks. And when you've ready to move on, the Perpendicular Trail as well as a handful of other paths start in the area.
