The Trek 820 for $220 is a good deal, and it's a good starter bike to get into the sport. I'd look into getting a hybrid tire. One with smooth tread down the middle and knobs on the sides. I started with a Diamondback Sorrento four years ago to do exactly what you want to do. I now have a Cannondale R500 because I enjoyed road riding more then thr trails, but I still hit the trails with the old D'back.
