Pemetic Mountain Ravine

nominally 0.5-hours

One aspect of "uniquely Acadia" is glacial slides.

Probably the best of them in the park is "the Giant Slide." But if you are looking for a very short hike that gives an unusual perspective on Acadia, this short hike is a good one.

Finding the Trailhead

Park at Bubble Rock Parking Lot. (The easy error is to park at Bubble Pond.) Cross the road from the Bubble Parking Lot and the trail head is there.

Details of the Hike

Shortly after the start of the hike, the trail splits into a ravine path and into a path though the mini-ravine and a path above the mini-ravine.

One can do it either way, but I recommend going up the ravine and coming down the trail parallel (i.e. above the ravine).

There are some views looking back at Jordan Pond and the Bubbles, but that's not the theme of this hike. For more of a view, continue on the
Pemetic Mountain Hike.

In Summary

I rate this hike an "A-" rating, One gets a quick exposure to the "glacial slide" and a quick turn back. Note also, this hike is particular good on a cloudy day or a day with limited visibility.
