Chimney Run trail is one segment of a larger trail network within Southwest Park in Guilford County, NC. It begins near the South parking lot and ends at the intersection with the Greenway Trail near the North parking lot. There are several options to combine with other trails to form a loop. The trail is well marked with Green signs and trail markers.

I combined the Chimney Run, Southern and Lake Trails for an approximately 2.5 mile unspectacular yet worthwhile loop. Chimney Run was the only one of the three woodland trails that had a nice view, as it looked out over the western edge of the park at one point.
