With only two months of summer left, you might be looking for ways to enjoy the outdoors before it starts getting cold again. Hiking is a perfect way to appreciate the warm weather, and luckily there are plenty of hiking trails around the Lake Geneva area. Here is a list of some hiking trails that you might want to visit before fall.
- Lake Geneva Trail
This 20.7 mile loop trail circles Geneva Lake and is perfect for all skill levels. Every inch of this hiking trail provides stunning views of the lake while showcasing lakeside restaurants and shops that you can stop at on your hike.
- Nordic Trail
Located in Whitewater, Wisconsin is the Nordic Trail, a loop trail that is 40 minutes from Lake Geneva. This trail is well maintained and allows you to choose from six different paths, all with varying lengths and difficulties. All six paths have one thing in common though, they all provide stunning views of Whitewater’s less traveled area.
- Seno Woodland Trail
This 1.7 mile loop trail is located in Burlington, Wisconsin; a 22 minute drive from Lake Geneva. The Seno Woodland Trail features stunning forestry with an uneven trail, making the hike moderately difficult.
- Kishwauketo Trail
For the perfect afternoon hike, head over to Williams Bay, Wisconsin for a 4.5 mile hike. Accessible year round, this trail features a lake and a lookout tower. On parts of the trail there are wooden pathways which make this hike even more scenic.
- Gander Mountain Loop Trail
Over in Antioch, Illinois is the Gander Mountain Loop Trail, a 1.4 mile experience that immerses you in nature. This trail is a 35 minute drive from Lake Geneva, but is worth the drive. We suggest wearing long pants and sleeves since parts of the trail feature tall grass!
