A little of everything. Faster and more flowy than Fully Rigid, but still enough rocks, roots and switchbacks to keep the tech crowd happy too. Quite rideable uphill (which makes a nice after work loop possible using Silent Swamp to Preston to PBR to Fully Rigid and back down JoyRide), but uphill is challenging in parts. If descending, keep your speed in check and be aware of riders climbing.

       I thought this was going to be an easy trail after Off The Grid. It was not so. Still has lots of obstacles, roots, rocks, tight switchbacks. Really fun overall, but just a bit harder than I was expecting for a blue.

       This trail is quite technical as a intermediate trail. It as many rocks. You can do if you go slowly. If you are comfortable with this trail, you are ready to challenge black diamonds as well
