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.

A Sigtseeing tour with nature and the water.

What a nice walk, shady and quaint. The homes along the path are worth seeing. Some really beautiful homes.

Stroll along this path of beautifully landscaped yards and amazing houses. The path is a variety of stones and pavers, which makes for an easy walk. Definitely family friendly.

I would definately recommend to take part of the Shore Path when you visit Lake Geneva. It is a great way to see the beautiful scenery and incredible home sites along the lake. I would remind you that the path goes along private property and sometimes it is difficult to tell where the public walk is opposed to the private... More

I really enjoyed this trail! I loved looking at all the homes along with their water toys. It was VERY hot the day we were there and some of the homeowners had free bottles water and dog treats. I want to try it again in the fall, I bet it's absolutely gorgeous!

It was a beautiful walk along the lake. It took me 8 hours and 15 minutes to complete the loop. The path was easy to walk, and the sign was clearly marked. The view was just beautiful.

We hikes along a shore for about 5 miles. A beautiful walk around the lake, and neat to see many of the area homes that have taken the time to welcome the shore path onto their property. Others, not so much. Some owners don't particularly value that 3 feet requires a bit of attention to tall weeds and foliage that... More

Nice path for a walk along the lake. Going south are several nice signs designed for thought and conversations. The lake is beautiful!

The path is nice, scenic, and you do not have to pay money to enjoy it. Paying no money does not mean this is a free walk. You will walk through peoples’ back yards possibly interrupting their privacy. These people bought their homes and had no choice but to allow hundreds of ‘tourists’ to stroll through a walkway on their... More

I am a local and I live within the area of Lake Geneva. Walking on the lake path was always an activity you must do if you are in Lake Geneva. The lake path offers a wide variety of views. My most favorite view is the huge, beautiful, and elaborate houses that sit right next to the lake path. I... More

Definitely worth the hike. We took the Shore Path from Big Foot Beach State Park and walked 2.2 miles. It was amazing seeing all of the big houses (mansions). At first it was a little awkward to walk on people's yard but we ran into some of the people that own the property and they were all very nice.
