Geneva Lake Shore Path

Fodor's Review

This 20.6-mile path hugs Geneva Lake, affording lovely vantage points for watching boats cruise the crystal-clear waters of the second deepest lake in Wisconsin. But it's what's on the shore that piques most curiosity: the grandiose mansions built by wealthy business moguls of the late-19th and early 20th century, like an 18,000-square-foot Italianate stone home (converted to six luxury condos) and the 30-room Queen Anne, now the Baker House Inn and restaurant. While the path is open to the public, it varies from paved to gravel to dirt, depending on individual property upkeep. Learn a little more insider info in the "Walk, Talk & Gawk" guide (available at many local shops; $6.95), which divides the path into seven shorter segments.
