Measured as the flat linear surface from survey marker to marker the park measures out at 5,412 Acres with no account for elevations.
Measured out with the calculations of the huge total elevation gains throughout the land, which gives a measurement of actual usable terrain the park, measures out at over 7,500 acres of actual usable land.
There are 8 plateau peninsulas on the property besides the main canyon that create massive privacy, a much bigger feel of the land, and countless hidden places to explore. At this time, we’ve only explored about 50% of the property.
The base elevation at the rim of the canyon is 3,412 feet above sea level. The lowest point on the floor of the canyon at MERUS Adventure™ is 2,500 feet.
Most of the elevation gains range from 100 to 500 feet in drop, creating ample opportunities for solid climbs and descents. This also includes cliffs and ledges with up to 300 foot drops creating spectacular views of incredibly rough and beautiful terrain to explore and play on.
Millions of years of erosion have created incredible colors and a variety of surface materials.
As you explore the park you’ll traverse Sand, Sandstone, Red Dirt, Rock, Stone, Clay, and more in rapidly shifting environments. This creates a very unique experience on the trails that’s hard to find anywhere else.
The signature terrain is the red dirt floor of the canyon. If you’ve never wheeled the red dirt, you are in for a real treat by mixing all the elements to constantly challenge your skill and be in awe of the beauty of the canyon.
