The trail covers the western portion of the park including “Lookout Post” used by the American Indians as a fort and lookout over the Cuyahoga River. Erosion has caused the trail to change over time, revealing some interesting new areas to investigate.

History & Wildlife

Hampton Hills is one of the larger Metro Parks, encompassing 655 acres. This park is a great example of the topography left behind from the last ice age. The glacially-formed Adam Run Valley was home to several American Indian tribes prior to settlement in the early 1800s. Along the trails, oak, elm, sycamore and black walnut trees provide habitat for a variety of birds and other wildlife. This park features one of the best areas for spring wildflowers. It also has several types of mushrooms and ferns, and an unusual plant called scouring rush which lines the banks of the stream. A grove of white pine, planted by Girl Scouts in the late 1960s, offers visitors a cool, scented respite.

The old Adam’s family homestead is located at the Top O' the World Area. Farm fields have been transformed into open fields and meadows containing milkwort, ironweed, Queen Anne's lace, goldenrods and asters. Several species of butterflies flit and flutter among the native plants. Bluebirds perch among the trees and shrubs looking for a tasty treat. Other notable bird species include woodcocks, wild turkeys and large birds of prey like red-tailed hawks. The hawks can be seen soaring above the meadows as they hunt for small voles and mice.

The archery range located off Steels Corners Road, is a great place to sharpen your archery skills. Targets are accessible year-round with your own equipment.
