USA/Midwest: Lake Geneva, WI
Walks and Hikes
Geneva Lake Shore Path: Walking the perimeter of Lake Geneva provides intimate views of the area’s most famous mansions and restored estates. Most visitors are surprised to learn that the entire shoreline is publicly accessible. The shore path follows a footpath originally used by the Potawatomi Indians. The entire journey around the lake is approximately 21 miles. Though possible to accomplish on a long summer day, most people enjoy breaking the journey into several shorter adventures.
The Blue Route: It extends from downtown Lake Geneva to Lake Geneva Middle School along an old railroad corridor. It’s the longest route and connects with all other cycling routes.
The Green Route: It provides parking and runs from Country Road H to Veteran’s Park along Townline Road.
The Red Route: Constructed in conjunction with the Highway 120 bypass, the route travels from County Road H north along the east side of Edwards Boulevard.
The Brown Route: It travels from Bonnie Brae Lane to Edwards Boulevard along Bloomfield Road and South Street.
The Yellow Route: It circles the Lake Geneva Business Park pond and runs through Veterans Park.
