Indoor / Outdoor Walking Trails

Do you want a quick, easy, way to stay in shape or burn off some steam? Southwest Tech has several walking routes available for your enjoyment! There is a one-mile indoor walking route inside the campus buildings that is ideal for cold or rainy days. If you enjoy the outdoors, there is an outdoor walking route at Southwest Tech as well.

Just across the road from campus is Oakwood Nature Park which has four different walking paths that you can do individually, or challenge yourself by doing them all as one long route.
