Moab, self guided roads for family?

Hey guys, I'll be in Moab in March for a bicycle event, but I want to do some light 4wd in our 2012 Tacoma TRD Sport double cab....any suggested roads/areas?
I'll have my family with 5 yr old daughter, 8 yr old son, and my wife, so fairly mellow roads are in order. I've been in the dirt for a long time, but they haven't.

thanks ahead of time>

Nathan

Check out Trail Damage, anything with a 3 or less rating should be pretty tame and good for you:

Ok, that's a great resource. I only wish there were better trail-location info, but I'll spend some time on the site and get a selection. Thanks a lot, Nathan

Check out the trail "gemini bridges" its a pretty decent road, at the first of it you kind of go along a little bit of a ledge overlooking the highway. then you go down into a nice sandy area, then you head up along a little bit rougher road. Which brings you to a couple bridges/arches.

Schaffer (sp?) Rd is a must, nothing difficult, I did it in BluTaco ('07 Prerunner). West side of the Colorado River and a little south of the city. The up run is my favorite. Awesome views!
