Mountain biking in Merritt BC Canada provides many opportunities to explore the backcountry of the Nicola Valley on two wheels. The biking trail system in Merritt BC covers all types of trails suited for all levels of mountain bikers from beginner to extreme. Trails range from easy-going double-wide trails for the casual biker to extreme single-track downhill runs with challenging terrain for the experienced mountain biker.
Nicola Valley mountain biking trail network includes Iron Mountain, Sugarloaf, Coulee Plateau (aka Midday Valley) and the Swakum Mountain trails. The trails provide opportunities to explore rolling grasslands, mountain ridges, and forested back country landscapes. Some trails connect to wilderness campgrounds.
Located on Voght Street, between Downtown Merritt and “The Hill”, is the Merritt Mountain Biking Skills Park. The skills park includes some high bank curves, drops, jumps and rails. The park provides a good place to hone your skills and to limber up before a big ride. From the Merritt bike park riders can access some of the mountain biking trails in the city leading to backcountry trails.
Thank you to the Merritt Mountain Bike Association for maintaining the trails and to fellow trail riders for respecting the trails and others on the trails.
