I’m heading to 508Intl in Sturbridge, MA this Sunday, (5/2) for their Jeep day. Expecting to be at the gate ~9am & start wheeling by 9.30.

There’ll be two of us wheeling together, maintaining social distancing. If you want to join us, let me know.

Had a great day at 508, thanks John & Nick/Carpy for the company. We had two novice Jeep who didn’t have a group join us at the park making a nice group.

Nice, I need to make it there at some point.
I've watched videos, what are the trails really like?

The trails are pretty tight and they wind back and forth a lot. There’s a lot of spots you need to watch both mirrors at. It’s mostly green with a couple blue sections. And there’s a playground area with a little ridge cutting across that you can run whatever line you want. That area is anywhere from blue to black. And they have a rock garden area that is too big for most Xterras. They have a motocross track that you can run if you want. And a handful of 30-50 yard climbs that could be interesting for an hour or so depending on how many are running them. The 3 of us and 2 randoms ran all their trails plus a single line Nick wanted to try in the playground. I think we were done around 2:00. It’s no GG. I’d say it’s a little more stock friendly than GG. I keep hearing from them that they’re cutting 2 more trails that will be blue+. Maybe at that point it’ll be a full day property. I like it for what it is. It’s pretty close to home. The trails are well marked. It’s fine for a day out.

Awesome and I trust your opinion.
I like the it's not too far and a place to go part. I miss gg for that part.

Definitely easier than Gremlin for the most part. You do have to pay attention on the twisty trails to avoid kissing trees but otherwise a nice ride in the woods. Close to home is a huge plus too.
