“Little Mountain Park's most technical trail.”— Eric Ashley
After that, Upper Surfer's Way gets more rowdy, and the going has rocks, roots, twists, and the occasionally tight spot. A few rolling climbs separate the steeper descents as the trail keeps playing. Keep your eyes up for a small, mandatory log roll partway down.
Ahead, the trail comes to a large rock roll. Unfortunately, the rock isn't setup for "in-trail" riding (unless you want to try and battle your way up it), but it does provide a worthwhile session point if your group is game to stop for some fun.
The rest of the trail is far more casual, and a series of dips and turns soon deposits riders at the intersection with Lower Surfer's Way and Down South. Keep left onto Lower Surfer's Way unless you started from the South Trailhead or want a good climb back out.
