The Green Circle is a 26-mile scenic hiking and biking trail that loops through the Stevens Point area and connects with over 20 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.

Since 1989, Portage County residents, businesses, local governments, and the university have worked together to develop the Green Circle, one of the first in the nation to encircle an entire community.

The main loop of the Green Circle is made up of 12 connecting trail segments (click here to view a map). All urban residents are within 10 minutes of the trail system, and yet, more than 80% of the Green Circle travels through secluded parks and natural areas.

Trail Conditions
Current Trail Conditions: June 17, 2016
During the week of June 20th, a dredging project on McDill Pond will require the closure of the crosswalk over Patch St. between the McDill and Iverson Park Trail Sections. The Green Circle itself will NOT be closed; users will need to find another place to cross Patch St. Please use extreme caution when crossing, as Patch St. is a busy roadway.
