This lovely 21-mile walking path, around Geneva Lake, takes pedestrians by impressive homes and quiet lakeside neighborhoods. A two-mile swath on the West End offers a manageable stroll, lovely views, and passes landmarks such as the Abbey Resort and Fontana Spa and popular local eateries like Chuck's.

My friends and I went to a restaurant by the bay and walked around the Lake for a few minutes. We saw how chill it is. It must be nice to have a lakehouse around here. The gardens are not bad either. I love the...More

What a lovely walk. We walked both sides of the path from the town of Lake Geneva for about a mile and a half. Some of the path was difficult to access with small children or adults with accessibility issues. We carried a stroller over...More

This is not your everyday "walk in the park" path. If starting form Lake Geneva the path is paved and wide. From there it winds along the lake curving through and across private property occasionally veering away from the lake but always nearby. The path's...More

Completed the hike around the lake yesterday with my 73-year-old mom! We did 21.2 miles in 8 hours and 30 minutes. It is a wonderful activity, but you need to be in shape. I recommend you start early. We hit the trail at 6:08 am....More

You get to see beautiful houses and mansion on the lake. You need good shoes to walk on the path, it is very narrow and muddy in some places.

Biking is not allowed on the trail. However, it is much better to slow down and enjoy the trail at a walking pace, as there are many spots you'll want to stop and take in the sights.
