Or head toward the foothills and then just do lots of exploring. You can literally ride until you run out of gas. I liked riding out by the Colorado river too, but not sure how that looks now cuz it changed every year.
There is probably a lot of fun trails out by the Army Proving grounds too, but you should not ignore any warning signs out there.
Problem I remember about Yuma, is, tons of desert, but really no designated trails that peaked my interest. Of course, back then I rode a quad.
Best thing is, you can take the canal roads, and farm roads just about anywhere you want.
Sorry I can't help more.

Or you can ride east from the parking area, find the major north-south sand wash (Fortuna wash, I think), follow it south under the interstate, and ride literally hundreds of miles south of I-8(though you'll be crossing a few military ranges). There are even some cool passes through the Gilas, though they might be a bit technical for the family.
I wish I were going to be around to show you the area, but I'll be out of town for a few weeks. Hope this helps. Have fun!
