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.

Unique walking path along Lake Geneva. Every property owner has an easement for the path so you have beautiful lakefront homes all along your walk. Stop at the Chamber of Commerce first to get interesting history of some of the homes.

If you can only do part of the 26 mile path it is well worth it. See multi million homes up close. One of the few lakes in the US that you walk the entire lake.

I have been doing this path for over 50 years and it never fails to please, whether it be winter or summer.Well worth the time, and can be done in manageable segments. Keep in mind no :facilities between Lake Geneva and Williams Bay--approx 7 miles

Wonderful views of the the lake, the town and million dollar homes. The shore path runs through private property that would normally not be accessible. Make sure you have some time and wear your walking shoes, as parts of the path are sometimes quite narrow or uneven.

The views are stunning. Although I visited in April when the weather wasn't that great, I have been in the fall and it's spectacular!

My wife and I were recently at Pier 290 and found this walking path quite enjoyable! It's a great way to spend time together and take in the view of the lake and fresh air! Make this part of your next Wiscation experience! #wiscation

Beautiful views on both sides of the path. Lake Geneva on one side and mansions on the other. There is free parking on streets near the path. If you prefer to pay, there is metered parking in Downtown Lake Geneva.

Today we walked the section from Lake Geneva to Big Foot State Park, then walked paths in the park. It was a great walk! We plan to walk a different section tomorrow. Beautiful estates & mansions to see along the way. We got the Walk, Talk & Gawk guide which gave great info along the way. This path circles the... More

I love walking on the lakeshore path! The view of the lake is so great, and it's just a great way to spend a day! If you don't have anything planned for a day, I would recommend the Lakeshore path!
