The Stevens Point area is your destination for outdoor fun this winter. Here are a few ideas to get you started:

  • Winter walks. Stroll picturesque downtown Stevens Point. Check out the murals that adorn downtown and drop in on a restaurant or café to warm up with a tasty meal. Other great places to take a winter walk: wander the beautiful UW-Stevens Point campus or pay a visit to the Stevens Point Sculpture Park.
  • Snowshoeing. Take a trek on the 1,000-mile Ice Age Trail. Part of this celebrated footpath travels through eastern Portage County and provides an unforgettable hiking experience.
  • Skiing. Cross-country skiers can enjoy wonderful trails in Standing Rocks County Park in eastern Portage County and Iverson Park in Stevens Point. Downhill skiers: check out the action at Standing Rocks. Sledders will find great runs in Iverson Park.
  • Snowmobiling. Discover more than 300 miles of trails in the Stevens Point area. Great hotels near the trails make this a fantastic base for your next snowmobile vacation.
