At MERUS Adventure™ Park we have a vision for building the best trails in the country. We are building off-road wheeling trails, Overland style trails, MTB XC trails, and MTB free-ride trails.
We have an incredible park with amazing terrain. We’re ready to build some fun and challenging trails!
Here are some common questions…
We will be building trails every weekend. We expect our official volunteer trail crew to be on-site and build at least once a month. If you can’t commit to the official trail building crew, you can still be a volunteer.
No, there are typically enough people with vehicles in the park and you should be able to find a ride with someone. You would just need to let us know your transportation ahead of time so that we can plan accordingly.
We will be building trails every weekend and expect the official volunteer trail crew to come to the park and build at least once a month. You can still volunteer from time to time, even if you can’t commit to being on the official trail building crew. You’d be a bonus to the official crew.
We will be supplying all the tools. However, if you like your tools better, feel free to bring them along.
Linear Acreage 5,412
Measured as the flat surface from survey marker to marker. No account for elevations.
Actual Usable Acreage 6,500+
Measured with the calculations of the huge total elevation gains and drops of the land. Which gives a measurement of actual usable terrain.
There are also 8 peninsula plateaus on the property creating massive privacy and give places to explore that are out of the line of sight.
Highest to lowest 900+- Feet
The base elevation at the rim of the canyon is 3,400 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, 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 terrain.
Palo Duro Canyon offers exposed terrain from 4 different geological time periods creating incredible colors and a variety of surface materials.
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.
The signature terrain is the red dirt floor of the canyon, if you’ve never wheeled/rode the red dirt, you are in for a real treat!
