There's a share of roots and rock spread throughout the trail. But if runners are attentive to foot placement, there's nothing to worry about. Definitely a premium section of trail with footwork and meandering fro the flexors.
Upper Surfer's Way starts with a steep climb away from the road, but quickly levels off at the intersection with Over the Top and continues along a rocky traverse past a seasonal pond.
From there, the moderately steep singletrack heads off through open woods. Small rocks and roots are scattered about, giving the trail a pleasantly rough, but still easy feel. A large boulder beside the trail marks the end of the tech, and Upper Surfer's Way soon ends after a few dips and turns at the intersection with Lower Surfer's Way
and Down South
