what is AdventureHER?
AdventureHER is an outdoor adventure weekend designed FOR women, BY women.
Our AdventureHER Event is a place where women can come, learn to off-road, wheel with ladies, expand their skills, hike, explore, adventure, camp, meet new friends and take on epic challenges.
Feel comfortable and confident to try new things in a no-pressure environment with like-minded ladies cheering you on.
With trails and clinics for any skill-level of off-roader, hiker or explorer, AdventureHER creates a comfortable space to learn a new skill or expand on old ones.
It’s time for you to get out of the passenger seat!
MERUS Adventure™ Park offers over 70+ miles of off-road trails, hiking routes and mountain biking all designed to Nourish your Adventurous Spirit™.
At AdventureHER, camp and explore for 4 days and 3 nights in America’s second largest canyon, The Palo Duro Canyon. Come experience some of the most beautiful scenery Texas has to offer.
By day, we take on the trails at MERUS. At the night, we meet at camp to swap stories of the day, eat some awesome food and enjoy the beautiful evenings with new friends.

Questions you might have
For both members and non-members we require registration in order to have an accurate headcount for food, trail runs, and park capacity.
Camping is included in your event ticket at the main group campsite. This is where meetups, meals, nightly chats and events will start and end.

You can also stay off property in a hotel in town. 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.
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.
YES! We welcome the people in your life to purchase a ticket to come witness, encourage and experience the event and MERUS with you! But fortunately, only the ladies get to drive.
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.
There will be on site bathroom facilities at the main camping area and the main offices will have shower facilities.
