mountain bike

I need help picking a mountain bike. I was thinking trek.
Can anyone please tell me a good, decent mountain bike under $310.
Also i am not going to go serious mountain biking and i am about 5' 8'' if that helps?

Your needs & budget point squarely at going for a used MTB. This can save you
money (bunches really) in the long run. Get a MTB that is FULLY FUNCTIONAL
without much worry about looks. It'll get all funky in use anyway.

Giant's mountainbike lineup starts at under $300. They are well made with a good warranty. Check 'em out.

You could get a new Trek 4300 for around $300.
