I would rather ride a rigid hybrid than a hardtail mtb with a crappy low end suspension fork. They donít work very well and weigh a ton. Unfortunately a hardtail mtb with a quality lightweight suspension fork will blow past your budget. To be honest, for the sort of riding you describe, you probably donít need a mountain bike. A fully rigid frame with decent tyres will take you quite far off road.
