On this page of our Hogwarts Legacy guide, you can find locations of all Merlin Trials appearing in the Forbidden Forest. We also supply walkthroughs for the individual trials.
Merlin Trial #1

Start by teleporting to North Ford Bog Entrance fast travel point and travel north-west.
After initiating the Trial, cast Revelio. Some stone blocks will be highlighted in blue. There are small rocks on them. Simply aim and fire at them with Basic Cast.
Once that is done, climb on one of the blocks. Your new task is to follow the path laid by stone monuments . If you've fallen to the ground, you need to restart the trial (all blocks will be back in their initial locations).
Merlin Trial #2

Teleport to West Forbidden Forest fast travel point and go east.
After activating the Trial, use the Revelio spell. You'll see some stone blocks to which you need to lead butterflies to.
Most of the time, butterflies are found nearby these blocks. Activate Lumos and the butterflies will fly towards the light.
One of the butterfly locations is hidden well - you need to destroy a wall built from small stones (if you can't find it, use Revelio and it will be lit in blue) using a more powerful spell e.g. Confringo.
Merlin Trial #3

Teleport to Jackdaw's Tomb fast travel point and travel east. There may be a group of wolves in the area, so it is a good idea to get rid of them first before initiating the puzzle.
Once the area is clear and the puzzle activated, cast Revelio. Your task is to light those highlighted objects (bowls) on fire. However, you need to be fast, as if you take too much time, the flames you've created will die out and you'll have to start all over again.
Before you start with the trial, approach one of the highlighted objects (the one near the trees). You will notice a large cobweb that makes the task harder. Set in on fire using Confringo or other fire spell to get rid of it. Once the cobweb is out of the picture, use Confringo to light 3 bowls on fire and complete the trial.
