Are there any trails that are so long or tedious that the family will go nuts??? I want to make this as fun an experience for them as possible...so I get to come back year after year. Cheers and I look forward to meeting many of you.

Welcome to the forum Evergreen neighbor.
Golden Spike is said to be a long long day in the seat. Elephant Hill is too, but the scenery and hikes help make it a family friendly day. You might want to skip the hardcore trails too if your family gets bored waiting to clear obstacles. I would pick some more scenic/fun/short trails for the family's first visit to Cruise Moab.
