Nine Mile Creek Regional Trail is a 15.3-mile, mixed-use path extending from Hopkins to Bloomington. It is maintained by the Three Rivers Park District. The trail features 8 separate boardwalks in 1.7 miles that traverse Nine Mile Creek and its marshes. It is predicted to serve 400,000 people yearly.

The trail was constructed from 2000-2014 and was finished and opened on June 3, 2018.

Early in 2019, the trail was awarded the Award of Excellence for setting an example of how a trail can be built through fully-developed communities (from Hopkins to East Bloomington).

Potential trail gaps were remedied with 3 trail bridges over highways and a trail tunnel under a busy street
