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 May 14, 2018)

With the recent sunny and warm weather, the Green Circle trail surface is now solid enough for bicycle riding. All trail sections are open and in good shape. Enjoy the spring!

Spring seems to finally have arrived in Stevens Point! While everyone is itching to get out on the trail, please keep in mind that the trail surface is currently very soft and susceptible to erosion. PLEASE AVOID RIDING YOUR BIKE ON THE TRAIL DURING THE SPRING THAW. Tire ruts channel water and can lead to long-term and costly trail damage. Ride on pavement or gravel roads for a few more weeks while the trail dries out. Thank you for helping to protect your Green Circle!

As long as April keeps foolin' us, we might as well enjoy a snowy hike. This is along the River Pines trail.
