Pronghorn Loop is a good place to bring the kids--it's not technical, but does have some rollers for some fun. Mahogany Loop is the most interesting trail of the bunch, but is short. The Canyon Trail is just a long doubletrack.
Cheyenne Rim has some neat views of the red mountains to the west. It is a long descent, but the fun is diminished by the consistently loose and gravelly surface, which blunts your speed.
You're pretty much guaranteed to see antelope (and I ran over a rattlesnake). Be warned, the Canyon/Cheyenne rim trails are remote with limited cell phone coverage. If you get stranded, it's not likely anyone will be by soon.
It's not a bad ride, but for 20 more minutes of driving you could be at Curt Gowdy.
