$600 will get you above a department store bike but it won't get you a bike of quality. If you are serious about riding you will want to spend a bit more. Something like this is a decent option and will last a while and give you decent shifting and braking as well: https://www.specialized.com/us/en/si...ext=92421-7100

I wouldn't buy a mountain bike unless you are mountain biking. If you are mostly on paved paths and grass and such just having something with clearance for wider tires is a good thing but if you are going to mountain bike expect to spend 1k on up and the more you spend up to a point the better components will be and the more reliable and comfortable the fork will be and you will also get into other more modern mountain bike features that have proven themselves quite useful.
