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 August 3, 2019)

The Green Circle experienced extensive damage during storms on July 19 and 20. As of August 3, all sections of the Green Circle Trail are open. Use caution on the trail as there are still some hazardous washouts on hills and a large amount of smaller debris that makes for a rough ride. A huge thank you to the dedicated crews of Portage County and Stevens Point parks departments!
