To me this (along with the description) is highway=track
tracktype=grade1. You can add surface, lanes, maxspeed, width, etc for
good measure.

The difference between track and service is not about the quality of
the road, but about its intended purpose. Track for agrigulture,
service for built up areas (very simplified). It's the same for all
highway=* values : the purpose and official classification are more
important criterias than the road quality. Which makes the secondary
tags even more usefull.
