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.

Did someone sprinkle pepper on the snow? Look closer, and you'll see those little black flecks moving! The "snow fleas" are out in force right now on the trail. These aren't real fleas; they're tiny springtails that hop like fleas and eat decaying plant material or tree sap.

Please do not snowblow and/or plow the Green Circle Trail. With our current warmup and rain, this cleared section between Heffron and Pioneer on the McDill segment has become dangerous to walk, run, or bike on. Please use caution when using all parts of the trail.

With all of the recent snowfall, now is a great time to get out on the Green Circle and explore its winter beauty! Portions that are groomed for classical cross-country skiing include the Plover River Trails (contact Portage County Parks at 715-346-1433 for conditions) and the Iverson Park Trail (contact Stevens Point Parks at 715-346-1531 for conditions). All of the other sections are open to ungroomed skiing, snowshoeing, and winter bicycling.

THE meeting spot for Green Circle Board Committees since 1989, Al's Diner in Stevens Point,
saw it's last days this week as longtime owner Gayle Guzman has sold her business. The Maintenance Committee brought its brain power to Al's one last time, and took the opportunity to present Gayle with a few small tokens of appreciation for serving our meeting space and dietary needs all those years!

Pictured here are Gayle, with Green Circle Board senior statesman John Jury presenting her with a medal of commendation and other Green Circle valuables - hope to see Gayle on the Trail now that her cooking responsibilities are lessened!

Thanks Gayle!!!!!
