Upper part of Dirt Surfer has a mellow pitch with lots of baby head rocks in the trail. Once you cross RD 2400 the trail starts to get rowdy with section of roots and rock gardens. You will cross Ken A creek and have 3 punchy loose climbs before you start the most popular section of Dirt Surfer (proper). Sit back and let'er rip!
