    Go to a local bike shop and talk to them to see what they have. I would imagine a hardtail with plus sized tires would be a pretty good option (something like a Salsa Timberjack (27.5+) or Trek Stache (29+)) would be what you're looking for. Not sure on the exact pricing of those two bikes, but they should be available around the $1500 range, if not new, then perhaps a model year old.
