Need to Know

Seven Mile Creek is free and open to the public. There are places to park nearby many of the trail entrances, portable toilets, a playground and picnic shelter. There are multi-use trails in this park for hiking, horseback riding, biking, and snowshoeing.

Trails are fairly well marked. Fires are allowed in designated places. No overnight camping or glass containers are allowed. The park is closed from dusk to dawn.

Description

This is the longest trail Seven Mile Creek County Park has to offer. The trail crosses three bridges and offers views of the creek. It offers a nice, lengthy hike in any season.

Trail 8 is a fairly wide, gravel path, though sometimes it can get soggy, wet and washed out depending on rain. The trail does wind up and down hills in the creek valley. Sometimes it is fun to check out the little ravine areas with intermittent streams along this route.

Flora & Fauna

Lots of birds can be heard and seen, sometimes deer, and there have been rumors of black bear sightings here. There are lots of woodland wildflowers such as trout lilies, jack in the pulpit, dutchman's breeches, trilliums, wild ramps and much more that can be seen flowering at certain times of the year in the cool woodland shade.
