Piazza Rock Hiking Trail

Piazza Rock

The Piazza Rock is a popular attraction along the Rangeley section of the Appalachian Trail.

 

PIAZZA ROCK TRAIL: Pick up the Appalachian Trail where it crosses Route 4, 9 miles south of the center of Rangeley. Hike towards Saddle- back Mountain. The Piazza Rock is an enormous, flat, overhanging boulder appearing to be balanced in mid-air and supporting the growth of large trees. The “Rock” is a fairly easy 1.4 mile walk through rolling woodland and features a series of boulder caves and secret picnic spots with a lean-to shelter. This is a nice hike for the family!

Although longer than listed here (1.8 miles) it was a great, well kept trail. The terrain was varied, with long stretches of fairly flat trial. An easy trail for an energetic dog as well. The days prior to our bike, it had been rainy, but the trail was fairly dry. Thee are some very “mushy” parts with cut log paths over those areas. It was remarkably bug-free. Getting to the top of the Piazza Rock was the biggest challenge, but it was fun to get up there. There are no real views from this trail.
