Leo, Summit has some mellow park runs too that are wide enough to avoid features you want to skip. I'm a newb in the park too & stick to the same kind of stuff you're looking for in a park run - maybe even smaller...
I think Baldy is closed for the season, but someone please correct me if I'm wrong. I've never ridden there, but my buddy claims it's the place to go after a huge dump.
I prefer Summit/Bear over Mt. High. I've had too many interactions with assholes there, and didn't find the runs to be nearly as long or fun as Summit
