Jordan Pond, Mt Desert, Maine, USA
Jordan Pond is an inspiring oligotrophic tarn in beautiful Acadia National Park near the town of Bar Harbor, Maine. It covers 187 acres, with a maximum depth of 150 feet and a shoreline of 3.6 miles
The pond was formed by the Wisconsin Ice Sheet during the last glacial period. It is flanked on the west by Penobscot Mountain and to the northeast by the two mountains known as “The Bubbles”. The southern end, and outflow, are limited by the natural Jordan Pond moraine, which has been supplemented by a small dam.
