Starting Over

I've had 2 bikes before this: a Crescent 10 speed in 1970 and a Mongoose mountain bike in 1992. After the mountain bike was stolen, I stuck to running. I'm now 66 years old, 4 years out from cancer surgery and running but would like to return to biking to help my knees and stay in condition. I don't anticipate riding on roads (history of skin cancers) but there are 'rails to trails' near me that go forever! So I torn between a hybrid (like Giant Roam 2 Disc) or a gravel (like the Giant Revolt 2). 2 questions: (1) are there Trek equivalents and (2) for fitness and considering my age, any recommendations? Appreciate any suggestions

I am 66 and 1 1/2 years out from cancer surgery. I celebrated with a Trek Verve 2 for mostly the rails to trails. It was the best choice for me!
