It was a nice day with the lake breezes. It was quiet and peaceful, and a great time just to walk and talk with someone special.

A wonderful path full of picturesque scenery and stately homes. A treasure open to all, especially beautiful during fall color season.

Have been traveling up to Lake Geneva for the last month on weekends. Taking in the beautiful peaceful Lake. Being up there in late fall made it more pleasurable. Smaller crowds. The path along the lake is wonderful to walk. We ended up walking just 5 miles, but it was so pleasurable along the lakeside and viewing the wonderful homes.... More

For me walking the shore path of LG is almost a spiritual experience, especially in the Fall. Spending my summers up there it just floods me with memories. I find the north side of the lake the prettiest, especially LG to Williams Bay.

A hidden (free!) gem in the area, I recently walked the path from Lake Geneva to Williams Bay, and can't wait to go back and do the entire thing. Be prepared for no bathrooms/trash along the way, but it's a beautiful walk...highly recommended.

There are not many opportunities to be able to get up and close to million dollar mansions, but you can here. Most people do the north shore, which starts downtown, but also go to the Geneva Inn and do some of south shore.

NIce walk close to the lake. Trail is kept up nicely and the plantings are great. Definitely worth the time. We walked two miles from Lake Geneva toward Williams Bay, and then turned around and came back. A nice inexpensive two hours of exercise!
