Everything for <$600: Trek 8.2 DS vs Gt Transeo 3.0 vs Focus Marakas vs Giant Roam 1

I'm new to California's central coast and I'm excited to get on two wheels again. There are hills with -- relatively light -- trails galore and also a 10 mile ride (paved) to the beach, not to mention around town riding (commute). I've been trying to find a bike that will allow me to enjoy myself in each aspect. Here is what price and assumed function have taken my choices to:

Trek 8.2 DS (formally the Gary Fisher Bodega)
GT Transeo 3.0 Disc
Giant Roam 1
Focus Marakas Trekking Bike - US Exclusive

The last time I bought a bike was 16 years ago, a specialized mountain bike, that I road 22 miles home from school on for a few years, which worked but just spent me. Needless to say, it's been a while and there is a whole new type of technology and I'm not familiar with much of it. Any help would be greatly appreciated.Top pick of these three?
