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.
