Suggestions for short overnight hike near Furance Creek

As we do each Easter break, we take our kids and camp at Furnace Creek for a week, exploring the valley by car on day trips. Since our kids are now teenagers, we are thinking of doing something different by doing a backpacing trip one night. Nothing serious, but perhaps a 1 to 2 hour hike, then set up camp, cook, sleep and walk back to the cars the next morning.
Any suggestions for a short backpack trip near Furnace Creek? It would be nice to hike to a destination, such as a mine, spring, building or view. Or perhaps just a nice place of desert solitude. Any ideas?
