The Cow Trail is the way to get to the more difficult trails. Otherwise just staying on the cow trail is a nice ride that finishes on the road where JP Cool begins.
In Merritt, at the junction Voght St. and Nicola Ave. (use the 7-eleven as a landmark), go south on Voght St and cross the bridge over Coldwater River. Turn left onto Mid Day Valley Road, which will turn into gravel at some point. You'll pass two cattle guards, and about 300m after the second one, you'll come to the meadows, where you park. There are trails going in several directions. Cow Trail is on the right side of the road. It is well marked.
