“Annual visit to 7 Mile Creek Park”
Reviewed September 18, 2013

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 hikers, biking and horses. The East side goes down to the Minnesota river with a boat landing and paths with the same use and areas as the West side. The creek flows down to the rive on the East side. Paths are both paved or improved dirt. Both sides are peaceful despite the busy byway.

“Great park for families and large groups”
Reviewed June 24, 2013

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 the trees change color. Bring your camera.

“Fun and beautiful.”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

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 bikes. For more casual outings there are picnic tables, grills, shelters, and volleyball courts open to visitors. Free trail maps are also available at the park. Horseback riding is a common occurrence there and is one of the few places you can go in the Mankato area. I would highly recommend this park to anyone.

“A nice horseback ride.”
Reviewed October 5, 2012

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 valleys leading down to the Minnesota.
A series of very nice picnic areas and playgrounds are present along Seven Mile Creek.
