The current map can be found at:

There are fewer miles of trails at Spring Valley compared to Kain or Rocky Ridge, but I think the trails are closer to what would be found at Kain. Can get a good 6-8 mile loop at Spring Valley, covering all the singletrack trails.

The trails there used to be pretty good. I rode down there almost weekly years back, and really liked the mix of trail types that were packed into a 7.5 mile loop. YAMBA had done alot of work years ago down there. However, it is used heavily by horses. And there are some users down there who have no respect for open/close rules. The trails got really chewed up by the horses, including two fresh ones cut by YAMBA. Those of us that do a lot of trailwork got really discouraged and decided to focus our efforts on Kain and RR. There is a horse group now doing work at SV, but they are widening the trails so they can ride two horses side by side, and smoothing out many of the trails.
