MERUS Adventure™ Is Proud to Present

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!

Went out here with a group of friends with a very diverse group of vehicles, two Jeeps, one Tundra, One Tacoma, an F150 and two Land Rovers (one of which had no low range!!) and we had a great time. At some point we took a wrong turn and ended up on a black trail when we intended on only going on green and blue trails. It was rough but using teamwork we made it through! We camped two nights and the Merus staff did everything to brief us on their safety measures and accommodations. The lady at the front desk was very helpful and extremely knowledgeable. If you're looking for a great place to camp and wheel, anything from mild to wild, look no further than Merus!!

This place is amazing. It has trails that fit any rig from stock to buggy and everything in between. I attended the Texas Toyota Takeover and spent 4 days in the park and may have seen a 10th of the park. Check the website for details about amenities. There is an office building near the front gate that has 2 bathrooms with shower open 24/7 if you’re doing a primitive camp. There are other off-road parks that say they are the best in Texas but this place will soon become the number one spot. Highly recommend spending a few days out there. You won’t regret it.

An amazing place to escape the urban grind and drive as challenging of a 4WD trail as you wish to explore. The staff are incredibly friendly and focused on creating a great learning and adventurous environment.

Merus is absolutely amazing and it's getting better every time I visit. New facilities, camp grounds, cabins, glamping, hiking trails and off road trails are popping up every couple months. Great atmosphere and friendly staff. Thank you Merus crew for opening and maintaining such a wonderful place and allowing people to truly experience Palo Duro Canyon without litter, without trash, and without obnoxious noise. Instead you get peaceful nature, clean facilities, no litter, and beautiful landscape. This place is truly amazing and I am excited to come back very soon.

Attended MAP’s first Adventure Her event and had the best time ever. The scenery and place is mesmerizing. Gorgeous canyons. Even though it rained and was cold and windy the first night, the staff and owners were extremely present and attentive to help provide anyone with assistance following the storm. They even gave my friend an additional air mattress to borrow. The Jeep trails are pristine and dedicated only to off road vehicles (no bikes or motorcycles). There were 101 classes, spotters and safety protocols that made the weekend feel fun but safe. Absolutely will be at this place again and again. Can’t wait for their new camping sites to open!

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.

Upgrades in accommodations like glamping sites or RV hookups sites are limited and based on availability. Check our website for booking options.

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.

Bring plenty of water, snacks and sunscreen. Make sure you check the weather before the weekend and plan appropriately for any rain, wind and/or cold/heat forecasted.

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.

All canyon campsites are primitive and pack-in/pack-out areas.

MERUS Adventure™ does NOT have potable/refill water facilities at this time. Check our website for updates!

YES, YES, YES! This is the exact event you SHOULD come to. We have developed this event to include all skill levels of off-roading. Beginner clinics and different level trail runs will be available to everyone. You choose your comfort level and grow from there!

You will need a 4×4 vehicle or a lady who will drive hers for you! If you don’t have a 4×4 vehicle, we can place you with a gal who does (female only). Just purchase an event ticket and choose the “I want to ride” option at checkout. 

Well….it’s both! We have a beautiful property that is meant to be explored! Breathtaking hikes, mysterious caves, braving the elements are all a part of the experience of adventure at MERUS Adventure™.

With over 5,800 acres, the quickest way to fully explore MERUS is by vehicle. And these are not on your standard roads but over rocks, down canyon walls, through tree groves, around cliffs, And it is quite a bit of fun. Have you ever tried it? Now is your chance! Beginner level trails are throughout the property, along with the most elite in off-roading. Mild to wild and everything in between.

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 purchase an event ticket as a passenger. Just purchase an event ticket and click the “I wanna ride” button and we will place you with a fellow attendee.

Driver ticket covers 1 driver & vehicle entry, camping, breakfasts, dinners, guided trails, event clinics, 1 t-shirt, 1 raffle entry [Off-Roader driver tickets – 1/rig]

Sorry fella, this one’s for the girls. Ask your friend, sister, mom, daughter (must be 18 & up to drive) to invite you along!

She sure can! But you must be 18 & up to drive the trails at MERUS.
