Route reccomendations?

So I'm going to borrow a friend's mtb over the break, and I want to see is Mtb right for me before I get a bike for myself. Can someone recommend me some beginner trails just so I can get my feet wet? I road bike a lot, and I know where to go for that, but I have never done anything with mtb before. I live in Mountain View, and would like to keep it relatively local. <15 min drive? if possible?

Check out Stevens Canyon, I am a newbie on MTB too and was just there last week and had a blast.

Arastradero Preserve in Palo Alto has some easy mountain bike trails.

Upper Alpine Road (between Portola Valley and Skyline) and the adjacent open space preserves are also nice.
