The Green Circle is a 27-mile scenic hiking and biking trail that loops through the Stevens Point area and connects with overĀ 45 miles of additional trails. It winds through forests and parks, over wetlands, and along rivers, recalling the days of huge pineries, pioneer settlements, and the lore of the Wisconsin and Plover Rivers.

Where did the Brickyard Trail get its name from? From 1866 to 1920, the Langenberg family operated a thriving brickyard adjacent to Zenoff Park. Many buildings in Stevens Point are built of Langenberg brick, including the Pffifner Building on the riverfront and Saint Peter Catholic Church on 4th Avenue. Discover more on the new Green Circle kiosk in Zenoff Park, and look for historic Langenberg bricks built into the stone foundation.

Please be cautious when crossing the boardwalks on the Green Circle Trail when they are dew covered, leaf covered, or wet. Signs are posted at the boardwalks warning that they are "Slippery When Wet." This goes for all trail users, not just bicyclists. Enjoy and be safe.

Please use caution when biking the Whiting Crossing Trail from Tommy's Turnpike to the pedestrian bridge over the Plover River (at the end of Cedar Street). The preparation for installing the new power poles is complete, but the trail is rough and sandy in many spots. The trail won't be repaired until the power poles have been installed. Thank you for your patience.
