Drove it today in a crappy Kia Rio. At no point did I have any concerns about bottoming out the car or getting stuck.

However, the roads are rough.

Most of FS250 is small rocks sticking up an inch or two, sort of like a terrible cobblestone street. There's a hill around the midpoint that will take a little weaving.

FS252 is overall better, but has some washboard sections and there's a pothole at it's midpoint that was the only thing I stopped for to assess if I was lined up well enough.

Expect to be perfectly fine with just about any standard FWD car, but expect it to take 45min to go that 8 miles of dirt road from where the asphalt stops. Presumably, something with a little better suspension would be able to go a little faster.
