Default Irons area trails??

Hey everyone, my parents are camping in the Irons area, and they want me to come up Sunday, and spend the day with them. They would like to go out on some trails. I will be in my Jeep, and they will have a stock suburban. I am looking for input on some nice trails that are EASY that may have a few hills or something easy that a stock suburban with a driver with little to no off road experience. Kinda looking for more of a scenic drive through the woods with a little fun. If anyone knows the trails in that area, and can help me plan a fun day for them, please let me know. Not looking for a trail guide/leader, just looking for someone to tell me which trail (number/roads) to go on with them.

Thanks in advance

If this is in the wrong section please move it.

Stop at Jones's Ice cream for a Lake co map and the Natty forest ranger station on south side for the MVUM maps.
There is nothing with a challenge. A cool spot at McCarthy Lake.
There is a ridge going north to south just east of Bass Lake where you can still find some hills. GPS or maps from Ed's sport shop show the elevation changes.
I may be heading up today possibly to the Hill lake area w of Big Star.
If I can handle the ticks for that long, maybe I'd still be up there.

Sundays are usually out for me, as "wheeling" alone there are likely to be no one else out there, as they are heading home and even on Sat's I usually see fewer than 3 vehicles, including ATV/bikes. State land east of 37 is another matter entirely.

Anything with a challenge to it has been blocked off. Stick to seasonal roads or the staked four digit NFS two tracks and you're good
