Well I figured I would start here, just moved to a Town that has hundreds of acres of state forest with miles and miles of trails. Walking and jogging is fine and dandy, but doesn't quite raise the adrenaline enough.

The plan is to save however much is needed over the winter and buy a nice mountain bike for trail riding in the early spring. Not looking to go over $1K but don't even know where to start! Would a full suspension bike be a better tool or does a hard tail work just fine for trail riding? There are very well groomed trails/fire roads mixed with quite rocky and aggressive trails.

Any input is more than appreciated!

Figure out what kind of riding you want to do and take it from there.
I went from a hardtail to a fs for more downhill control.
Once you figure out the terrain youll be riding mostly, you can better determine what type of bike you need. Check out pinkbike.com and the buy/sell section. You can find a great deal on a bike.

Yep Zach and talk to locals on what they recommend. A hardtail with 29" wheels is a good bet for starting out. If you plan on riding aggressive then likely you'll wanna pony up for full susp. At your pricepoint, FS will either be used or very low end components and heavy.

Zach, I have similar terrain out here in virginia. Went with a specialized rockhopper pro for about $1200. Good bike so far. I'm sure if I did more down hill riding I would have loved to get a full suspension. Also how much coin I spent was important.

So for doing a more all around trail type riding, a hard tail wouldn't be out of the question? I know a few of the local trails have some smaller jumps and I don't want to bust my ass too badly.

hardtail should be fine for light trail rides, even some rocky terrain. if you plan on going fast downhill i'd recommend a fs bike.
i sold my cannondale hardtail for $500 a year or so ago, so there are good bikes to be found if you take some time and look around. im on a specialized epic fsr now and the handling is night and day....definitely feel glued to the ground with the fs and the fox brain out back.

For about $1K, you'd be better off with a hardtail with a good fork. A 29er with a decent RockShox Reba, or a Fox Float is a really good place to start. It's tough to find a decent full-suspension for less than about $1600 used.

haha thanks man, are we friends on pinkbike how'd you know about the old demo! but its a long story...any way my guy at specialized wanted to get me and my buddy (kid in the video) riding on status's to promote the whole "baller on a budget" thing this race season so i sold my Demo to get the Status which i was totaly down for at the time cuz i got to pocket all the cash from the Demo lol but i wish i never did it because the bike was nothing like my demo it wasnt bad...but it wasnt a race bike, it rode like a freeride bike. and then not long after my guy at specialized got promoted and moved to india as the marketing director there, and the guy that took his place was zero help at all, i couldnt even get thru to him to get new pads for my helmet so i was over it and i ditched the Status after Sea Otter and was planning on ordering up a cV10 and then realized i wanted somthing i could acutualy pedal (and i wanted to finish the rear LT on the taco)...i had ridden an intense 275 at a prior demo day at our shop and loved it so i knew i wanted 650b and was going to get a bronson till i found out they were crazzy backorder cuz they had just came out so i called up intense and they hooked it up and honestly the Tracer275 is the best bike iv ever owned im gona race this years DH season on it...or cope an M9 well see haha but now my specialized guy got promoted again and is like a huge area manager for a large part of California and is trying to talk me into an Enduro, i told him not till they do a 650b one im too hooked on the big wheel army ha
