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.

The path is hit or miss at times, but it was enjoyable and relaxing to walk along the path. We didn’t do the full 21 Miles, but it was still a good way to spend an afternoon.

The terrain is inconsistent, but the trees and homes looked beautiful. We will do the walk again in the summer or spring.

Not many people know that you can walk the whole 21 mile perimeter of Lake Geneva, passing by some of the beautiful private estates in the area. I am a good walker, but not that good so we kept it to around a 4 mile...More

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!
