      There are three distinct riding areas. The main trail areas are: Visitor Center, Midday Valley road trails and Lundbom Lake area. This area also hosts many forest service campgrounds surrounding the many small lakes that are popular fishing areas. Venturing into this area is a treat for the city folk, offering a chance to see loons, fish, osprey and ornery locals giving you the evil eye for camping in their fishing hole. The mountain bike trails are maintained by a small group of dedicated riders who form the Merritt Mountain Bike Association.
