Piedmont Trail System


Quoted from COGGS website:

The Piedmont Trail has three access points. The best option with the most parking is located at the Piedmont ski trail parking lot. Two other options are along Haines Road at the Superior Hiking Trail and State Trail crossing point and also along Skyline Parkway near the Wheeler Field overlook. This is the most difficult entry point as it leads up the Skyline Climb.

Piedmont has 10 different trails of varying length that compose the system. They are:

  • Deerslayer - A winding trail descending to meet up with the Stovetop Loop.
  • Scarface - A short, flowing section with several fun technical features that allows you can keep them spinning all the way to meet the Upper Burner of Stovetop.
  • Red Dress - Technical, twisty short section meeting up with the Upper Burner. Several options to huck off some rock ledges.
  • Stovetop Loop - The Upper Burner of Stovetop is above the Powerlines and the Lower Burner is below. Together they make an intermediate level loop which all other trails spur off from.
  • Merritt Creek - Technical off shoot of the Upper Burner of Stovetop. A quick loop with very short lollipop that adds distance do doing a complete lap at Piedmont.
  • Foxx Rocks - This trail travels along the southern park of the system and has several great overlooks and lots of rock features.
  • Admiral Rockbar - This is a short, extremely technical option off of the southern most part of Foxx Rocks.
  • Skyline - This is a burly, rocky ascent/descent to Skyline Parkway. The top of this trail offers several great overlooks and two great places to let the tires leave the ground.
  • NIMBY - A short trail off the eastern part of the Lower Burner of Stovetop. It is a two trail trail that leads to two extremely advanced trails. They are:
    • Medropolis - This is a great huck line with 8 drops from 12-30". All drops are rollable or you can wheelie drop or huck off them.
    • Rickety Cricket - This is another huck line which features 4 drops and brings the rider back down to the start of the NIMBY trail.
