Stop at the University Trail that meanders through Schmeeckle Reserve and visit the Schmeeckle Reserve Visitor Center, which is the headquarters of the Green Circle Trail, for more information on winter activities.
For more cross-country skiing check out Standing Rocks County Park, which is open on a daily basis throughout the snow season. Lighted loops are available, including trails for snowshoeing and fat-tire biking. Rentals are available at the Behnke Olson Outdoor Recreation Center (BOORC) on site.
An outdoor venue that combines art and culture in the Stevens Point Area is the Stevens Point Sculpture Park. Visit the 20-acre park that is always growing and changing for some family fun.
