The Green Circle is a 27-mile scenic hiking and biking trail that loops through the Stevens Point area and connects with over 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
With the snow finally melting, 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.
