This trail used to be good, but when you get inside Cliff Cave Park they totally ruined what made it beautiful to begin with. Paving the trail and taking it completely out of the woods is not cool (not to mention the fact that they're bulldozing down all the trees and the woods to accommodate people who want an "easy" nature experience that isn't even in nature anymore...what the hell??). I would suggest hiking on the wooded loop part of this trail and completely avoiding the Cliff Cave Park portion of it altogether. I'm really sad about how they ruined it...

Paved and very popular, no challenges walking it. Did see a lot of animals. Good path for big groups, beginners, pets, and kids.

Unless I completely missed something - trail is closed for construction (April 2017). Still want to come back when it's open

The Spring Valley Trail is only 2.3 miles long but that is just the outer loop - there is also an inner loop and some side trails - so it can be a good hike if you go on all trails - although they are not marked very well.
