Great park, really nice trails. We ran a half-marathon out there, there are trails that suit all ability levels. Great for families with pets too.

Great hiking in spring and fall when the trees are colorful. In the winter one can cross country ski there also. Pic nic shelters are available for gatherings.

This is a great park with trails for all sorts. There are also an abundance of picnic areas and wood-fire cooking spots. This park is well kept and always a good time!

This trail is 7-8 miles long (shocking I know with a name like 7 mile). The trail is always very well visible (no guessing). It is challenging at spots. You will get a workout. However, if you want a easy hike/run you can find some mild trails. the scenery is beautiful! You will see lots of wildlife. There is plenty... More

Minimal facilities and picnic area. Nice walking trails -- nothing heroic; you might manage five miles with all the loops. It's on a bluff down to the river, so many of the trails are hilly and woodsy. We used to take the kids there; we still go ourselves.

We like to visit this park at least once a year. Park is split by a busy HWY 169, but a underpass allows access to both part no mater which side you park in. West side has picnic areas and play areas and has the creek with several paths through the wooded ravines. Some path sections are challenging. Open to... More

I've visited this park many times with my family and with students on school trips. The park is long with lots of trails for walking or biking, and there are many separate areas for families or groups, accommodating many groups at the same time. Very clean, with picnic, river, and campfire amenities and playgrounds. Very beautiful during the fall when... More

7 Mile Creek Park is a beautiful park located almost midway between Mankato and St. Peter. It's a good location for a little exercise, a family outing, or a even a date. The trails are well maintained and have a variety of paths you can take on your hike, however they are gravel so not recommend for strollers or road... More

I come here a couple of times a week in the summer and early fall to drop off the friendly squirrels that bother me around my home

My wife frequents 7 Mile with friends for the horse trails. don't ride anymore often than have to but recently accompanied her for a very pleasant afternoon on horseback. After a nice ride down the maze of trails to the Minnesota River, we croosed via tnnel US 169 and traversed the part of the trails up and down the little... More
