Jordan Pond Nature Trail, Acadia National Park

(4.5/5 based on 700+ reviews on the web)
Formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet thousands of years ago, Jordan Pond Nature Trail in Acadia National Park covers 76 hectares (187 acres) of the park, with 5.8 km (3.6 mi) of shoreline. Enjoy a walk around the lake on a well-maintained hiking trail or on a carriage road. The clear waters reach 46 m (150 ft) deep, and visibility has been recorded up to depths of 14 to 18 m (46 to 60 ft)--the deepest in the state. Swimming is not allowed in the lake, but you can kayak or canoe on its waters. Have a meal at the restaurant overlooking the lake to view it from another perspective. You can reach the area by car; hikes start from the parking lot.
