MERUS Adventure™ at Palo Duro Canyon
MERUS Adventure™ is a 6,500+ acre private property in Palo Duro Canyon. This property 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. With most elevation gains ranging from 100 to 500 feet, there are ample opportunities for solid climbs and descents.
We started with a vision to redefine what a premium outdoor experience could be like. To build a park that nourishes the adventurous spirit. A place where friends and families could come together and where new lifelong friendships are formed. A place where we challenge ourselves to push harder, climb higher, ride faster, and unleash some adrenaline.
What started as a vision is now well on the way to becoming the premier outdoor recreation park in Texas and competing to be one of the top in the country.

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.
