The Forbidden Zone Features a large number of man made free-ride features, including dirt and wood jumps, a qualifier skinny, step downs, hips, transitions, and other features. This trail starts on the Tigerwoods trail near the top of the berms, and continues downhill, crossing the access road via multiple paths, including a 33 foot road gap and a step down bridge. It is highly recommended that you scout the whole line first before you drop in, as there are numerous large features here. Pre-ride, re-ride, and free-ride
