Seven Mile Creek is a free public park, located on the west side of HWY 169, seven miles north of Mankato and four miles south of St. Peter, MN.   The park features miles of hiking, horse, and mountain biking trails meandering through beautiful heavily wooded ravines, crossing the small clear creek several times.  While there is one level paved trail, all the other trails are wide enough hard packed dirt.  Beautiful views from the hilltops, many little paths down to the creek, quaint walking bridges, and options for differing trail difficulties and lengths make this park ideal for all ages.  There are also playgrounds, a picnic shelter, and areas for volleyball and badminton in the wide open spaces as one drives into the park as well as campfire/grilling sites in the less heavily wooded areas.   The creek is stocked every spring with brown trout, as conditions are ideal for this fish. 

This park is managed by Nicollet County.  It is open from dawn to dusk year round.  Overnight camping is not permitted.
