Located on the northern end of Bubble Pond, this medium-sized, carriage-road bridge was completed in 1928. Bubble Pond Bridge is located right next to the Bubble Pond parking lot and takes the main carriage road over a minor spur from the parking lot. Parking here is extremely limited and the lot is usually full during tourist season, so riding the free Island Explorer bus shuttle system may be a better option. Nearby hiking trails include the Pemetic North Ridge Trail and the rugged Cadillac West Face Trail. Across the Park Loop Road, the carriage road continues to the Eagle Lake Loop.
