Walk the Lake Geneva Shore Path

Originally a footpath used by the Potawatomi Indians, this peaceful waterfront pathway winds around Lake Geneva, passing some of the country's most historic landmark homes and buildings. In all it's a 21- mile hike near century-old mansions, and spans Lake Geneva's entire circumference. Walking along all or part of the Lake Shore Path is a wonderful activity for families, combining exercise, history and fun! The Abbey Resort offers group walks and guests can stop by the concierge for a free map.
