The 3.2-mile Adam Run Trail forms a sort of figure eight with Spring Hollow Trail. Travels through ravines and over streams.

Fantastic hike today. The trail was slippery in a few places and there were opportunities to hop across streams. Very well marked trail. Beautiful wildflower meadow area at the back of the loop, so glad I opted for the longer hike even though it was sprinkling a bit.

It was a perfect hike. I loved the ever-changing scenery. It was awesome for a weeknight hike!

Most enjoyable. The “Top of the world” is a wonderful spot for meditation or a little yoga. From there to the trail head can be a little noisy, being so close to Bath Rd.
Be careful in the rain.

Wonderful trail, a mix of forested and open high field grasses. Does include some significant ups and downs which is nice but to be aware of. Wonderful couple hour hike.

One of the neater trails I've found in the area in terms of terrain and scenery, and not much noise pollution from traffic until the last 1/4.

Beautiful views, we went to the left first and enjoyed the climb. There was little to no water running so we had no trouble crossing areas that may have had runoff’s.

I love this trail! Awesome for trail running. A moderate amount of hills, lovely wildflowers in May, and some little stream hops. Super fun.

Me and my friend Amy do this trail all the time. We like it because it’s a little challenging and always empty. There’s never really anyone there whenever we go. There’s a set of stairs here and there’s also a nice elevation. Make sure your shoes are waterproof as you might or might not get wet crossing the river. I will most definitely be back.

Love this trail! It gives you a little of everything from water, hills, streams, fields, pine trees etc

It's a great trail with a good mix of hills and flora. There are a few times that the path crosses the stream without a bridge.

Nice trail through different terrain. If you turn left, the climb is more gentle and the down piece at the end is not hard. Turn right in the beginning of you want a steeper start. Most of the trail is definitely easy.

Great trail, very serene. Nice ups and downs but not too strenuous. Mostly through wooded area, short section through meadow.

This is one of the better trails in the area. It's good in all seasons. Lots of trillium in the spring.

There are actually two trails here: The Spring Hollow trail is a shortened version of the Adam Run Trail. At the far end of the parking lot, you can go left or right. Left goes along the creek, crossing it several times and is pretty leisurely for about a mile or so. Right heads uphill and gets steep pretty quickly, with a number of stairs in several spots. I usually go left.

The trail is wide and easy with aforementioned creek crossings. This first section (and on up to Top of the World) is pleasing because it's one of the few trails in the area that's not near roads. The Spring Hollow Trail goes to the right up a narrow, steep ravine after which you'll return to the parking lot (go right at the top of the ravine). The Spring Hollow Loop is about 1.6 miles. Go straight for Adams Run.

You'll continue through a grove of white pines (planted by a GS troop back in 1968 according to a sign there) and will eventually hike along the edge of some old fields at Top of the World. Then, you'll enter the woods again, following the trail back to the parking lot. The last stretch of the hike is close to Bath Road, which means traffic noise.

Awesome trail. Good amount of ups and downs, beautiful scenery. Great in all weather conditions... although some parts can be sketchy if it's too icy. Will definitely keep coming back to this trail.

One of my favorites... not too long, not too short and not too crowded!

Loved it! Varied, challenging for NEO, beautiful, 4 or so stream crossing, and not too crowded... but MUDDY! Prepare for the mud or go when it's been very dry. I had fun, and my dog certainly did too.

One of my favorite hikes in the area. Great variety of scenery, trail composite-grass, dirt, leaves, gravel, moderate hills and lots of switchbacks across the stream. At least half the home you can hear the water running. Beautiful. Yup-this was a warm February so of course it was super muddy. Wear the right footwear for mud and great day on a warm winter hike!

I work nearby the Hampton Hills MetroPark. Adam's run trail has been my go to spot when I want a hike/trail run that I can get to quickly after work. The beautiful scenery along with creek bottoms, meadows, forest and elevations makes the work out that much better.
