Touring Bike?

You might consider a touring bike.

I don't have one myself, but I've ridden with a couple of guys who have them and they ride them just about anywhere there's a path.

I was riding on a tour in Arizona with a guy who took off on a 40-mile fire trail "short-cut" with his Trek touring bike with no problem. I don't know the model, but it was full tourer with fenders and a rack. His rear tire was a 28.

Having had a hybrid, I don't think you'd want to go with one if you're going to be doing any decent amount of road riding -- they feel too slow after awhile.
