Do you say "passed the worst or trouble ahead?" or "past the worst or trouble ahead?
 
Past = beyond, at the far side of.

You drive past the store on your way home.
You have made it past/beyond/you are on the far side of the worst.
 
:up: The preposition is "past". The past simple of the verb pass is "passed". When you have passed the worst you are past the worst.
