Trail is good to go, but expect dry, dusty and loose trail surface and/or occasionally deep sandy areas.

Spring Valley Creek is a fantastic trail–a classic Idaho gulch trail that follows a creek at a moderate, steady grade. It’s reminiscent of Hulls Gulch, 15 years ago before Hulls was widened by consistent overuse. Spring Valley Creek trail ascends from a craggy gulch near the Avimor streets to open, rolling hills with excellent views of Stack Rock. It’s popular with a variety of trail users–joggers, hikers, and mountain bikers–but it’s rarely crowded. Mountain bikers are drawn to its excellent “flow,” with just enough rocks and other obstacles sprinkled in to make it interesting. There’s one particularly tricky rock that few bikers can ride; if you clear that section, pat yourself on the back! In fall of 2017, the City of Boise purchased a parcel of land that could connect Spring Valley to the Stack Rock trail, which would be amazing.
