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.

Current Trail Conditions

(Updated September 19, 2017)

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 of the site for installing 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.

There's plenty of time to enjoy the Green Circle Trail before sun sets on summer.
