The Lake Geneva Lake Shore Path is 21 miles of clever, unique, and unforgettable hiking. It is a 2 foot wide single track footpath encircling Geneva Lake that meanders through the yards of historic and modern estates. It is a hiking trail - a world class hiking trail - yet a hiking trail of such unique character that it becomes instantly memorable. If you take the time to walk its full length or even a small segment of it you will own enduring memories for a lifetime. A walk on this trail is a watercolor master work come to life.
Perhaps Lake Geneva's oldest tradition is the Lake Shore Path. It was a trail encircling the lake leading from one Pottawatomie village to the next. As European immigrants began to settle the area the path remained. By law, this trail must be maintained by lake front property owners and be always open for the public to walk on between the three communities on the shore of Lake Geneva.
