I may just convert my backup bike to a light trail bike by switching to a tire with a knobby tread. I don't think my bike would fit anything wider than a 30mm tire. Are there any knobby tires 30mm or narrower?

You might reconsider the need to have knobbies in the first place. The other day I put on Michilen Transworld Cities with inverted tread and rode them pretty aggressively on a sandy and steep trail here in Boise. I was impressed... Review: 700 X 32 Michelin Transworld Cities (Offroad & On) . My father and I do a 100 miler every year that is about 60 highway miles and 40 offroad miles on rocky mountain roads. This will be my tire of choice for that ride next summer.
The reason I bring this up is because they come in a 28 and are way faster on the road than knobbies.
