Trail Overview

Surprise is a short natural surface single-lane road, with no turnouts. It is overgrown in spots and you will get pinstripes. A part of this road is very technical and requires a four-wheel drive short wheelbase. It is a washed-out section, that becomes very hard to do in wet situations, with a bit of a short climb, and a big dip that if done in a long wheelbase will rub the bumper. The road ends at Hardesty Trailhead - Upper which leads to the Hardesty Lookout Tower.
