There are tons of mid forest and lower timberline destinations that will be free of snow. No need for all the high altitude suggestions. As usual a few replies list places that require going through high snowy passes or are at destinations likely to still have alot of snow or be wet and soggy. Be wise and stay below 10k and where trails route in sunny exposures. Folks this is a 4-day trip with two ten year olds. I could make a long list but here are a couple nice ones.

Out of Thomas Edison Reservoir, Bathtub Lake. Here is one couple's trip photo report:
