Seeking advice for first MTB

I'm in the market for my first mountain bike. I've never ridden MTB and am not well-informed on the intricacies of their mechanics or which bikes are optimally suited for the various disciplines of off roading. I'll provide some info on my intended usage...

...I plan to use the bike for off road exploring, anywhere from short to long distance. I do not intend to race or tackle advanced level MTB trails. I'm willing to sacrifice performance for durability, but do not wish to lug around a tank. Furthermore I'm on a limited budget; do not want to exceed $650 all-in.

The usual site has a single-speed steel offering discounted at $320. It's definitely piqued my interest
