Greens and blues. There's a playground with more difficult obstacles like ledges and a long steep hill climb. There's a mud hole for playing in. I did a couple of laps on the moto track which was silly but fun. The intermediate trails were pretty challenging for me (33s open/open) in a couple of spots. Some very tight squeezes. Lots of pinstriping. Rock sliders got a very good workout. I had to winch after I got high centered on a ledge at the playground. Personally, I thought 508s blues were harder than GG blues but others may disagree.

Can't wait to go back.

The challenge is mainly with the narrow trail & many opportunities to run into trees. Expect for a play area and a rock garden there aren’t many rocks to navigate like walk in the park or the trail near the ledge at GG. But more changes to accidentally get some trees mods here.

If you consider the Rausch rating, it’ll be mostly all greens. The same could be said if GG too for that matter.

GG has devolved a bit over time to a darker shade of green. Not quite Rausch light blue.

Maybe some sort of unofficial Halloween run at 508?

I may go back there on one of their Jeep days in November. Brookridge is on 10/3, might run another NEA property later in Oct based on availability.

There are 508 events scheduled regularly - just posted a night event they are hosting in the regional forums this weekend.
