BJ's surprise is a dedicated downhill trail consisting of a series of bermed switchbacks with numerous drops along the terraces. The first section of the trail has several rock drops that have becoming increasingly difficult over time and the Glenrock Trail Alliance are in discussion with NPWS to upgrade the trail rating to a black diamond trail - yet to be confirmed. There is some rutting and trail deterioration on some of the corners but the trail is otherwise ridable and a decent challenge.

At its end you can link back around to Seuss Land via It Happens or zip straight down Bottom BJ's.
