Hello. I am looking to purchase a new mountain bike within next month or so.

Budget is $350 max.

this is a joke

this is a bike that I really want but i'd like some of your opinions on it!(personally, I wish it came with more features like seat shocks, etc..) I like the white frame/black wheel combo

no clue about this one...

any recommendations? its mostly for city and bike trail riding...i don't think im doing any rigorous mountain biking off trails...
what is hardtail or full suspension?
age 32, 6 ft. 1 in., 167 lbs.
I'll buy anywhere the price is right.

Your thoughts?

That craigslist bike isn't worth what he's asking for it. It's probably not worth what he's asking if it was a new bike.

You can find some bikes at that price in bike shops. Also, for the kind of riding you're describing you don't need a mountain bike, it may not even be the best choice. A good hybrid with narrower (but still wide) tires and a rigid front fork will be faster and in my opinion more fun on bike paths and multi use paths and city streets.
