  • Site Description: The Coutlee Mountain Mtn Bike Trails are managed by the Merritt Mountain Bike Association. This mountain bike riding area offers a number of cross-country trail loops varying in length. Novice riders will enjoy an out and back ride on the "Cow Trail," whereas more advanced riders will enjoy "JP Cool" and "The Notch" trails. Logging of mountain pine beetle infected trees has occurred throughout the riding areas and as such much of the area is in a open canopy, ranch like setting. Riders should be aware that ATV and motorcycle use is also prevalent in the area.

  • Driving Directions: The area is only about 15 minutes from the City of Merritt. Accessing the main trailhead: Starting from the 711 store and gas station in Merritt, head south on Voght Street. Cross over the Coldwater River, turn left onto Mid Day Valley Road (which soon changes from pavement to gravel)and continue driving. Travel approximately 4.5 km up this road (about 300 metres past the second cattle guard) until reaching a flat staging area on both sides of the road. No trail head signage.
