Part of a great easy-intermediate loop that provides access to the rest of the Piedmont system.

Description

The Upper Burner of Stovetop is above (north of) the Powerlines.

Together with Scarface, Deerslayer and either Lower Burner or Foxx Rocks, it makes up the main Piedmont loop, from which all other trails spur off.

Upper Burner is a rough, rooty, rocky handbuilt trail. It doesn't have any mandatory scary features, but there are some tough optional features and it's definitely not all smooth sailing.

Coming from Scarface, take a right at the signed trail intersection to get onto Upper Burner. You wind your way around the hills, several bridged stream crossings, some bermed switchbacks, and then eventually cross the under powerlines. At the far side of the powerlines, you'll intersect Stovetop Lower Burner

A fun a challenging trail. Just be cautious of the social trails branching off and for intersections that are on granite and unmarked. I missed the intersection with Merritt Creek, but my wife noticed it. Lucky for me she has a good set of lungs and was able get my attention that I missed our turn. I was checking this app every couple of miles to make sure we were on the right trail after that as there are lots of intersections and social trails to keep track of. Still, a really fun trail and I will definetly be riding it next time we're in Duluth. This trail combined with Home Brew, Lower Stovetop and Deer Slayer make for a great ride. Sep 8, 2015
There has been a lot of signage installed in Piedmont in the last year, so combined with an app like this, it makes it very doable for people to find their way around this trail system. Jun 5, 2017
