Lake Walk – Other Information

Lake Walk reservations must be booked by phone or in person – no online reservations.

This option is suggested only for those who are accustomed to walking and hiking at least seven miles.

Reservations are required for pick up or drop off. The boat will not stop unless there are passengers with advanced reservations. 

Williams Bay Municipal Pier is used for passenger drop off and pick up:

  • Williams Bay has one Municipal Pier that is clearly marked.
  • Walkers being picked up must be at the end of the Municipal Pier 10-15 minutes prior to the boat’s arrival.

Reservations are required! You must provide your name, cell phone number (in case the office or the boat Captain needs to contact you the day of your walk), email address, and payment in full.

  • This is a self-guided tour. You determine your start time and the pace you set.
  • We recommend allowing at least 3- 3.5 hours for the walk between Lake Geneva and Williams Bay.
  • Only the path is public property, everything else is private property.
