The Green Circle Trail

The Green Circle Trail

If you’re looking for a unique way to see all of Steven’s Point, the Green Circle Trail is a great option for the whole family.  Located just 3.2 miles from the Holiday Inn Hotel & Convention Center and surrounding the entire city as well as outlying villages, it connects parks and neighborhoods with a series of public trails.  The trails are accessible from anywhere in the city and can be use for a leisurely stroll, wildlife viewing or just to get some exercise.  Pets are welcome.

The Green Circle is a 26-mile scenic hiking and biking trail that loops through the Stevens Point area and connects with over 20 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.

Since 1989, Portage County residents, businesses, local governments, and the university have worked together to develop the Green Circle, one of the first in the nation to encircle an entire community.

The main loop of the Green Circle is made up of 12 connecting trail segments.  All urban residents are within 10 minutes of the trail system, and yet, more than 80% of the Green Circle travels through secluded parks and natural areas.
