I think 215/75r15 works well on a subaru. yields lots of ground clearance, without sacrificing too much gearing.
what kind of tread to get is entirely up to you. and depends on your budget, preferences, and uses. you said it'll be just trails, nothing too extreme, but how much of it's life will it spend on these trails vs the road.
if it's going to serve Daily Driver status, and you don't want to spend much at all, you can't beat the Uniroyal Liberator A/Ts from Wal-Mart. got some tread (for an A/T), real quiet on the highway, and far cheaper than anything else.
you could take a step up to BFG A/Ts. better tread, better treadlife.....higher cost.
there isn't much available for a mud tire at that size. The Super Swamper, of course. But those make crappy road tires.
you could get some SUV All-seasons (Mud and Snow tires). I've had some all seasons with better tread than any A/T I've seen, and for a decent price. and will usually yield good treadlife too.

wow that almost looks like the design that i was thinking about for my brat...
Known as the trashwagon. Mine was originally designed as a replica of the first one made by Miles Fox and used in the upcoming movie. He's had like 7 or 8 subaru trash wagons over the years. All painted in pretty much the same color scheme. (http://www.economysuperstar.com/milesfox/subaru/mysubaru.htm)I bought this one from him about a month ago and have been repairing and upgrading it.
Don't think there's ever been a trashwagon Brat before. Neat!
