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.

Put on your best gym shoes and walk this gorgeous path. Breathtaking views of amazing homes. We took a boat to Williams Bay and then walked to Lake Geneva. It was absolutely wonderful and well worth our time!
