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.

Beautiful Lake, Beautiful Mansions!

The walk around the lake was beautiful. It was a nice way to spend part of the day away from the shops and cars.

We started from Lake Geneva on two different occasions - the first time walking left (west) and the second time walking right (east). Both walks were lovely, and I can't really say that either was superior to the other. I believe the sign said that the distance around the lake is 20 miles, so to do the whole distance, you... More

Beautiful views of the lake and mansions. If you can drop your car off and start a few miles up, it is well worth it. It was about 60 degrees and perfect.

There are no restroom facilities along the path, but George Williams College has restrooms that are accessible from outside.... More

Around sunset, we both leisurely walked along this lakeshore path, chit chatting... the trail is clean and well maintained, the view of Lake and houses is awesome. A wonderful place to be with someone special.

Wow, did not expect that! Took an autumn stroll around the lake finding everything from spectacular houses to a little zen-like oasis with benches for meditation and reflection. The hike is easy, at least the part we did... the only hard part was not spending the entire day stopping to take photos!

My wife and I followed the path for a short walk but we truly enjoyed the fall colors. This path I heard goes all the way around the lake.
