Eddy Pond and Piazza Rock Hike

January 18 from 9:30 am - 5:00 pm

Free

The first Maine Appalachian Trail Land Trust Community Winter Hike will be on Saturday, January 18th with a meetup time of 9:30am.  The destination will be Piazza Rock (a big rock) and Eddy Pond (a nice pond, shown above) on the A.T. going up Saddleback Mountain.  The distance to Piazza Rock is 1.8 miles, and Eddy Pond is about 1.9 mile beyond that.  Altogether, there and back, the distance is 7.4 miles.  This is a strenuous hike that has ups and downs but we will not be ascending any peaks, and we will not be going above treeline.  Note on the meeting spot: in warmer months there is a parking area where the A.T. crosses route 4, but it is usually not plowed in the winter.  We will park alongside the road and we will meet where the A.T. crosses route 4.  Carpooling will be arranged the day before the hike.
