Need to Know

There are several doubletrack ranch roads in the Highland Trail Area that lead to Private Property. Stay on designated trails and don't explore any unauthorized ranch roads. Respect Private Property.

Description

The northern portion of Faye's Fury is a directional trail to the signed intersection with Sallee Key Flow and Tuck and Roll, allowing downhill biking only. The southern portion of Faye's Fury is bi-directional from the signed intersection with Sallee Key Flow and Tuck and Roll, allowing bi-directional access to and from Jasper.

From the northern intersection with Jasper, Faye's Fury begins with a short, punchy climb before reaching a nice enjoyable grade around the hill. After a short enjoyable climb, begin a fast descent to the beautiful Harris Park Meadow. Once you enter the meadow, stop at the old wooden fence, take a photo of the stunning red rock cliffs and start the fast, rolling descent through the meadow.

After a few bermed turns, hop on a rough doubletrack through the woods and watch your speed, the trail will soon be leaving the doubletrack and entering a feature-laden gully to your right. This short section of trail in the gully contains a few intermediate drops with ride arounds. It is recommended that you ride this section a few times to familiarize yourself with the features before attempting them, they come at you fast so being familiar with them is extremely helpful.

After the gully, you'll arrive at a signed intersection. The trail on the left is a short connector trail that heads up to the bottom of Sallee Key. Use the connector trail to extend your ride further into the Highland Area. Faye's Fury continues downhill to your right with more rock features and ride arounds.

The next signed intersection is where Tuck and Roll and Sallee Key Flow meet Faye's Fury. Tuck and Roll and Sallee Key Flow are both directional trails, allowing downhill biking only so at this point your only option is to continue downhill on Faye's Fury.

From this point, Faye's Fury is a bi-directional trail to the southern intersection with Jasper. On this section, while it is still a fast, flowy trail with a few small features here and there, remember that uphill riders always have the right of way.

After some more fun descending, begin a short climb with a few switchbacks up the side of the hill to reach a nice easy meadow portion of the trail. Enjoy cruising through the meadow until you reach the intersection with Jasper. Take a left on Jasper to make your way back into the Colorow Trail Area. Don't take a right on Jasper as this is a predominantly downhill trail that isn't very fun to climb.
