Burns, Kansas

This is one of my favorite hikes, a 360 panoramic view of the off shore islands and reward yourself with tea and popovers on the lawn at Jordan Pond House, your starting point, afterward.

This is a great morning hike from Jordan Pond of ~ 2 hr duration. You will summit and have breathtaking views of the ocean and the lakes within the park. Worth every minute!

This hike is a bit longer but the views, like with every mountain on the island, has spectacular views. I used to hike this mountain when I was in high school and college and enjoyed swimming in the pond at the top. Make reservations at Jordan Pond after your hike for their famous Popovers and tea.

A day's substantial adventure. One of the eastern mountains around Jordan Pond, with breathtaking views of the surrounding peaks. Like all the Mount Desert mountains, perfectly scaled to a day's central activity. All these trails go more or less straight to the top, in the north-eastern fashion of trail-design. And after a good, hard effort (but not too hard) you reach the top (which is actually not that high), and you're rewarded with summits and views and satisfaction comparable to those from mountains five times as big. And all in a day or half-day, within half an hour of home-base, and anyone can do it, at whatever level or pace they wish.
