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

(Updated February 12, 2019)

The trails are now covered in snow and open to winter hiking, snowshoeing, fat tire biking, and ungroomed cross-country skiing. For information about the groomed Plover River Ski Trails, contact Portage County Parks at 715-343-6277.
