what is AdventureHER?

Brought to you by MERUS Adventure™, AdventureHER is an outdoor event designed FOR women, BY women.

It is a place where women can lean and expand their skills off-roading, camping and hiking. And more importantly, connect, make new friends and take on epic challenges together! 

Where they can feel comfortable and confident to try new things in a no-pressure environment with like-minded ladies cheering you on.

With trails for every skill-level of off-roader or hiker, AdventureHER creates an amazing  space to learn new skills or expand on old ones.

It’s time for adventure and  playing full out with your fellow ladies! 

The Event

At AdventureHER, we camp and explore for 4 days and 3 nights, hosted by MERUS Adventure™.

By day, we take on challenges and adventure on the trails. At the night, we meet at camp to swap stories of the day, eat some awesome food and enjoy beautiful evenings with new friends. All in some of the most beautiful scenery Texas has to offer.

We had an amazing time exploring Merus. Molly was wonderful in directing off-roading novices with kids to the best parts of the park. My kids (ages 3 and 6) had a blast both in the car and exploring Elon's Mars on foot. We will definitely be back and plan to stay longer next time!

I did an intermediate tour and it was fantastic. Lots of interesting and challenging obstacles in a beautiful location. Our tour guide Jeff was very helpful and knowledgeable. We stayed in one of their cabins and everything about the cabin was great. Comfortable bed, great shower and bathroom, and it even has Heat and AC. Would definitely stay here again and do the intermediate tour again.

AMAZING place! My husband and I went to camp out of our truck bed and do some off-roading. The guided trail tour was the highlight of our trip. Whether you are experienced in technical trails or just a beginner, these tours are a sure way to have an awesome day with others who love adventure and challenges as well! The Merus community is kind, helpful and fun, made the trip up from Houston totally worth it!

Great camping spot! The views to the canyon from our site were gorgeous. Got to see sunset and sunrise. The staff was super helpful with making our reservations and moving it up a day. Definitely recommend this camping spot. You do not need to off road to enjoy it. We will be coming back.

We stayed in an Arch Cabin at MERUS Adventure for the first time and what a wonderful stay we had. The cabin was well equipped with everything we needed! The staff provided 5 star service and nothing compares to the views of Palo Duro Canyon from the large deck!! Could NOT ask for a BETTER experience!!

I brought my son and 3 friends for his 17th birthday. We camped at site F on the rim of the canyon and the view was breathtaking!!! The office staff were so friendly and informative. There are two bathrooms behind the office that are like legit home bathrooms, wonderful shower head, super clean. We will definitely be coming back and we have several friends and family members who will be visiting as well!

Questions you might have

We encourage you to grab a girlfriend for this epic adventure!

The gentlemen in your life are welcome, as long as they are riding passenger – only the ladies get to drive for this one!

Anyone attending must purchase a ticket.

YES, YES, YES! This is the exact event you SHOULD come to. We have developed this event to include all skill levels, you choose your comfort level and grow from there!

And there will be many amazing ladies to learn from!

Registration is required for anyone attending the event. This assures we  have an accurate headcount for food, trail runs, and park capacity. 

MERUS Adventure™ is a primitive, outdoor property. And this is an outdoor experience! You will need to bring your own camping gear, camping water, weather accommodating supplies, toiletries, snacks, lunches and gasoline you will need for the weekend.

The closest town with gas and food is Claude, TX located about 15 miles away from the main gates of the park.

We do provide all breakfasts and dinners at the event. All other food & drinks are the guests’ responsibility.

Bring your camp chairs for meals and to cozy up around the campfire at night.

Camping at basecamp,  the main group campsite, is included in your ticket. 

Upgrades in accommodations like glamping sites, cabins or RV sites are available through the park. Check our website for booking options.

You can also stay off property if you choose. MERUS is about 15 miles from the nearest motel and 35 miles from the nearest hotel, in Amarillo, Texas. Travel to/from daily will be required.

We get it, there’s nothing better than gathering around the campfire after a day on the trails. However, MERUS Adventure™ is currently observing a strict fire ban. Propane cooktops and small propane fire pits are permitted and acceptable. NO WOOD, CHARCOAL, OR NATURAL BURNING FIRES ARE ALLOWED. 

In addition, we ask that smokers be prepared to distinguish their cigarettes/cigars in their vehicle. This park is precious to us and we work hard daily to protect it. If you are found to violate these rules, you will be reminded once then asked to leave the park on repeated instances. 

Absolutely! We love having pets and furry family at the park. The canyon does provide many natural hazards, in addition to the many vehicles at this event. So for the safety of the animal, we do require pets to be leashed and in your full control at all times.

Open alcoholic beverages and consumption are prohibited in off-road-vehicles during use on trails, in public parking areas. Alcohol consumption is allowed in designated camping and event areas only. Violators will be asked to leave the event.

Unfortunately, no. You will need to be able to shift your vehicle into 4wd – 4L to be able to drive on the trails at this event. You can still join in the fun though, just purchase an event ticket.

We are a full-sized vehicle ONLY off-road park. We do not allow Razors, Rangers, side-by-sides, ATVs, UTVs, or dirtbikes on the trails.
