Mill Run is a tributary stream of the South Branch Potomac River, belonging to the Potomac River and Chesapeake Bay watershed. The stream is located in Hampshire Countymarker in the Eastern Panhandle of the U.S. state of West Virginiamarker. Mill Run flows seven miles from its source into the South Branch south of Romneymarker near Hampshire Park on South Branch River Road (West Virginia Secondary Route 8).

Headwaters and course

Mill Run's headwaters lie in a hollow between South Branch Mountainmarker (3028 feet) and Nathaniel Mountainmarker (2739 feet) in the Nathaniel Mountain Wildlife Management Areamarker. The stream runs northwest where it is met with a number of trails and old lumbering roads used by fishermen and hunters that utilize the WMA. Two small unnamed streams also born from hollows in Nathaniel Mountain join Mill Run as it flows toward Peterkin Conference Center. After passing through Peterkin, Mill Run adjoins Hampshire Park and its 4-H camp facilities such as its council circle and makes its way past the old Pancake Schoolhouse. Mill Run then flows under South Branch River Road and empties into the South Branch near Riverview Farm.
