Experience the grandeur of Lake Geneva by hiking the 21-mile lake trail.

A 21-mile public pathway circles the irregular shoreline of Lake Geneva. The memorable hike affords a perspective of the lake and it's surrounding mansions rarely afforded in North America. Hikers are treated to sites such as Stone Manor, a Italianate structure; Fair Lawn, built by the famed Charles H. Wacker; Aloha Lodge, built by Tracey Drake of Drake Hotels; Black Point, built by Chicago industrialist Conrad Siepp, and former estates of the Wrigley and Borden families. Other historic influences include the former Northwestern Military Academy and an area of Big Foot Beach State Park that features a replica of Lake Geneva created by the Maytag magnet. Details of mansions, picturesque boating communities, town accommodations and the exact route of the trail including the broken link around the "No Trespassing" sign near Trinke Estate are available at the state park, local shops and restaurants.

Directions: From Lake Geneva, WI, Take County 120 south for several miles to reach state park entrance. (Other trail entrances with parking areas are located lakeside in the towns of Fonana, Williams Bay, and Flatiron Park in Lake Geneva.)
