Piazza Rock

Piazza Rock Professional Review and Guide

"Piazza Rock, a monolithic rock that seems to defy gravity and logic, is located at the end of short and fairly easy section of the Appalachian Trail, south of wild Rangeley Lake. The huge, flat, overhanging boulder invites exploration.

The trail is really quite easy, with the exception of two steep pitches at the beginning and end. Those two stretches bump the trail up into the more difficult category. There are also a handful of bridge crossings to negotiate. Surface quality: Unpacked."

As the description notes, this is a fairly easy trail. It is well marks, being a well-traveled section of the AT. The "rocks" are giant and interesting, but some care has been taken to discourage hikers from going out on the tops of the rocks. It's a quick 2-3 hours for most experienced hikers, with a decent payoff at the end
