Looking for a new bike (newb)

Hi all! I looking to get back into riding again. I currently have a 20 yr old box store bike (manufacturer has worn off). It's basically a POS. My son has finally learned to ride his bike, Trek Pre-caliber) and I want to enjoy riding again as well. I'm leaning toward a Trek and torn between a DS2 or a Marlin 5/6. I am a large frame male 6'-4" about 250 (and hopefully shrinking) . Mainly will be riding road and bike trail but want to be able to go into the woods as well. I'm leaning toward the Marlin because of frame and wheel durability and will give me many years of use without having to upgrade due to the versatility of the Marlin. Thoughts from the pros?
