Not a bad trail in the heart of a decently populated area but unfortunately there were several locations with broken glass all over the trail.

It is a maintained trail, not fully paved. Limited passing space for social distancing. Bathrooms are open and very clean. Felt safe and fun with the kids and dog. The trail was quite busy for an early Friday afternoon and we would like to come back again at a less busy time. We didn’t make it to the end of the trail. It is poorly marked as you go. The stone tower provided remarkable views but one steeper hill going up to it was full of glass shards. Be careful or go up from the road entrance not Adirondack entrance if you don’t have good balance climbing up.

Great waterfall feature and a mix of paved and natural trail. A bit noisy between the golf course and the traffic on the road. Plenty of elevation and plenty of side trails to explore.

Nice trail, with a cool stone tower towards the end. Slight elevation gain.

Started off at PawPaw pavilion, ventured to Friendship Park (Houk Stream) and Up to Elizabeth’s garden back to Hill’s & Dale’s trail by dogwood pond up to the monument. Great Evening! Making memories with my son whom is off to college soon. Beautiful neighborhoods & trails

The Hills and Dales MetroPark is one of the most well kept and scenic parks in the northern Miami Valley area. The Adirondack Trail is a good workout and has lots of elevation changes, nice paved areas, beautiful views and landscape and is just lovely overall! We easily hiked over 4 miles by adding in short trails and lookout areas to our hike. Wonderful trail and park!

Nice area, but not that great of a trail in and of itself.

I always enjoy this park for a quick, easy hike. I easily hiked 3 miles having to go around the pond twice. Went up to the statue, through the woods, across the road and up the trail at what I think was Oak Camp and back to Paw Paw Camp where we parked. Took the 17 year old along for the fun and there was little complaining, so I call that a win! There are plenty of hills and dales as the name of the park suggests, just wish the park itself was a bit bigger; however, with it sandwiched between Oakwood and Kettering, it’s a great little MetroPark!

Decent urban hike that almost makes you feel like you are in the woods. The hiking area is straddled between a road and a golf course, so depending on the time of day could be loud and busy. Great for getting used to elevation changes. There are some alternative routes not listed here that make the hike more interesting. Regardless of which you take you will enjoy the scenery. Be cautious when crossing Patterson, people like to drive fast through the hills.

Really nice trail, very clean! Some nice smaller hills with some optional small connecting trails. All small trails start/end back on main trail. If looking for more mileage, it will require several loops or run additional miles around the park and/or thru the surrounding neighborhoods, which are very nice and can be hilly. Take some time to visit the statue and enjoy the view from the bridge! Additionally, the trail has some nice surprises, like a waterfall, stone tower, and staged gates to enjoy. Overall, I would highly recommend this trail for runners, hikers, casual walkers, kids, dogs... has a little bit for everyone to enjoy! Happy Running!
