Noob.. broken single track advice?

Hey all,

I've mostly been riding on the street, but I'm looking to tune my old rigid fork MTB for riding the slightly more technical single tracks that go around the flat woodland around these parts. Practically zero hills, no drops, but a ton of trees, roots and rocks, plus some old eroded V-ditches to make it interesting.

At the moment I'm running medium-large knobblies - pretty good for climbing the roots. I am also considering replacing the rigid fork for something a bit squishy, but no idea how much travel to look for. Basically it's just trial and error on my part, to find out what works. If anyone would have any input for what makes a decent "broken trail" bike, I'd be happy

The paths around my area look something like this:
