New to Mounatin biking

Im just starting to get into riding. My dad gave me a Diamondback Outlook that he had. Im not sure how old it is but it does not have any suspension at all. I dont know a whole lot about bikes so I was just wondering if this is a good bike? Im pretty sure its to tall for me. Its a 22in and im 5'10" tall. Any advise for a newbie would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
