2. Hike to Jordan Pond
One of my favorite things to do on Mount Desert Island is the hike to Jordan Pond. Jordan Pond is an amazing restaurant where you can sit outside and enjoy the view of the beautiful Bubble Mountains overlooking none other than Jordan Pond. There are several paths you can take to hike to Jordan Pond, but the one I usually take crosses over Elliot Mountain and takes about two and a half hours. It is so rewarding when you finally make it to the restaurant and can enjoy an amazing lunch!
