Overview

Brief tour of Southwest Park's trail system. Several landmarks such as a cabin, chimney remains and the amenities at the park including the shelters, playground, boat ramp and dog park.

Description

Counterclockwise route around Southwest Park starting at the Boat Ramp Parking lot. This route heads northward along the Lake Trail until the intersection with the Southern Trail. You'll pass by the baseball fields, an old cabin and a dog park. The Southern Trail ends at the parking lot near the park entrance.

Route picks back up again at the other end of the parking lot, past the shelters. Takes the Chimney Run Trail southward past an overlook and remains of a chimney until meeting at the boat ramp again. Can start this route at any one of the parking lots.

Optionally take a detour around other trails like the Greenway Trail SW Park Walking Track or Bear Trail.
