Pickle Surprise is located in the One Mile Lake Area and is a short, but fun, descending trail heading down towards the lake from the Overhill Trail. The trail contains a couple of fun Technical Trail Features (TTFs), including a steep bridge and a small wooden jump. Pickle Surprise is another alternative ending to K2. Once you get to know the area, you’ll find there are plenty of options to end K2 with. Although you wouldn’t typically head out to just ride Pickle Surprise, you could combine it with a few of the other alternative endings to K2 for a fun filled loop. One such option would be to ride Sea to Sky > Overhill > Overhill/K2 Connector > Fizzy Pop > Overhill > Pickle Surprise. Pickle Surprise spits out at the east end of the lake, from where you may ride left to get back to the One Mile Lake parking area or right to access the Pemberton Village.

Park at the One Mile Lake Area and ride the Sea to Sky trail to Overhill. Ride up the Overhill trail for 350 m and look for the well-marked entrance to Pickle Surprise and Lower K2 located on the north side of Overhill.
