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.

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.
