cross bike on trails

I'm a roadie, and I'm building a touring bike with igh (alfine 8). I figure it would be really cool if I can use this bike on the trails too, provided I can find a proper cross frame that's also really durable.

Can you guys help me point out the pros and cons of mtb vs cross frames? I'm only doing trails so I can hang out with friends who does mtb, improve my bike handling skills, learn how to bunny hop like a boss, and potentially gain skills that will help me avoid crashes in road racing. what types of terrain are unsuitable for cross bikes?
