Merritt Creek is a fairly technical loop off of the Stovetop (Upper Burner). Much of this loop is one-way...watch for the directional signs. The route will take you across several craggy and fun bedrock rides. Portions of this trail are littered with embedded cobbles and it's fairly rugged...not primped & 'flowy' like many newer machine-built trails.
