Looking for an enduro equivalent

Guys - just sold a Honda crf250r so now I'm looking for a bicycle which will be close to an enduro - compromise between road and rough mountain riding for $500. What can I get? A cycle cross has been suggested. Where can I get the best deal new or used within Chicagoland. What's the best bang for the buck in that price range. I'm coming from a 25 yr old kmart pink Caurus Steve Bauer with two broken cranks ( mountain bike bought in Montreal Canada after my road Sekine got stolen). I've a (rich) friend in Mi who bought a titanium $3k bike.. not looking for that.

Thanks

Stephen

Where are you planning to ride off-road mostly? Local singletrack like Palos, gravel bike paths or? Will you be spending more time off-road than on?
