Default Full Size Friendly Trails?

what trails are full size truck friendly with out banging our trucks up trying to turn down a trail? We go to the mounds a bit and like the trails through the woods, but want more. Can you guys post names or llinks to trails that will let us go down them? Here are a few truck in question:
Both of these, black GMC with 37's, my Tahoe with 35's

And this white chevy: WOW!! I almost forgot what my truck looked like stock!!

I went all the way into the back - I took the trails but not the ones that had huge ruts - I dont have the lift and tires for that.

x2 for Grayling we used to wheel there alot before we got into jeeps. Trails are really wide, and there are a couple that are pretty challenging...most of it is just sandy hill climbs fro what I've seen.
