  • Site Description: Managed together with the Merritt Mountain Bike Association, the Iron Mountain Mtn Bike Trail is An EXPERT mountain bike riding area. Trails accessed from the top of Iron Mountain are for shuttling only; these are not "out and back" or "loop trails." These trails, which descend 1100m down the mountain, offer up small climbs, traversing single-track, and steep pitches. The bike of choice is "free-ride" but these trails will accommodate either end of the spectrum. All trails require EXPERT level technical skills! No motorized vehicles please.

  • Driving Directions: From the 711 store and gas station in Merritt take Nicola Ave south and connect onto the Coquihalla Highway towards Vancouver. Travel south for about 10 minutes until reaching the Comstock Road (Exit 276). Follow this road under the highway, and continue along this gravel road. Take the second left on this road, and then continue on. At the second fork you come to where there is an old log structure, go left again. This road takes you near the top of Iron Mountain where there are radio/communication towers. Close to the Summit there is a road to the left which will take you to the first tower and the start of the "Hornet Trail." To reach the second tower ("98" and "99" trailheads), continue on the main road to the top.
