Hey I was wondering if anyone knows how these compare to other merrell barefoots as far as trail running is concerned? I've never had barefoot shoes before. Because I never really wear shoes anyway but I thought these might be a good compromise to me leaving muddy footprints all over the house. I'm just not sure which version would be best in the mountains.

IMO, the first thing you need to consider when getting a pair of barefoot shoes is how they fit your foot. It doesn't matter if it's the best on the trail if it is uncomfortable to you. Beyond that, I'm not a runner, so I can't speak to that specifically, but I can say that the Lithe seems to offer a little more structure and support when compared to the Pace or Dash so it may be better for gnarly terrain.
