Need help finding tires!!!!!

I'm planning on taking my family to bike the GAP this summer. I was looking to get them some different tires than their slicks. Both bikes are 24" x 1" which I just found out isn't really the size. One is 25x520 the other is 25x540. I thought maybe those skinny bmx tires at first but they were 507''s. I have room for a 37 width or 1-3/8" without any clearance issues. What are my options, is there any gravel tires out there to fit these rims?

I found some nos intense micro knobby tires 24 x 1-3/8 110psi rated that are 520 so I think I'll get them, from what I read they are discontinued now. My one daughter had a set on her old micro mini bmx bike and they seemed good then. I'm hopeing to find a simular 540 size tire with the same pattern.

The Panaracer Pasela is available in 520, but only in 25mm.

Knobby tires aren't my choice unless I plan to be off-road.
