It's called Surprise Pass because you'll hardly notice, then, SURPRISE! You're over it!

Description

A low, easy pass that divides the Coal Creek Trail and the Nyack Creek Trail. Gentle, slightly rising in elevation, and a beautiful coniferous forest is the modus operandi of this trail.

The fact this trail has its own name is, excuse my pun, a surprise, since it is really nothing more than an extension of the Coal Creek Trail from one end and the Nyack Creek Trail from the other.
