Lake Geneva Bike Path (Route of the Badger) Description

The Lake Geneva Bike Path runs through the scenic resort city, offering connections to many of the community’s amenities. The trail has five unique, color-coded segments.

The Blue Route is the rail-trail portion of the bike path and also serves as its spine, as it connects to every other route along the way. In the south, the trail begins near Lake Geneva Middle School on N. Bloomfield Road. Coursing northwest with just a couple deviations from the former rail corridor, the route ultimately emerges into downtown Lake Geneva. A short spur through Donian Park offers scenic views of the White River.

Both the Green Route and Yellow Route branch off from the Blue Route near its midpoint. The Yellow Route offers the more scenic trek through forested wetlands, while the Green Route is a more direct trip along Townline Road to the sprawling Veterans Park.

The north–south Red Route, which parallels State Route 120, is the longest trail segment. The path provides convenient access to residences and businesses on the east side of Lake Geneva. In the north, the trail takes users directly to a large retail complex on N. Edwards Boulevard.

The Brown Route of the Lake Geneva Bike Path is the shortest but also one of the most critical, as it passes directly in front of Lake Geneva Middle School.

Parking and Trail Access

Parking for the Lake Geneva Bike Path is available at Veterans Park on either Veterans Parkway or Park Drive. Alternatively, park on-street farther north in downtown Lake Geneva.

Not Recommended

Many busy four lane streets to cross without traffic lights. Sidewalks end without warning. Steep hills you have to walk your bike up. Pretty little picturesque town but not bike friendly.

Lake Geneva Bike Trail

Unfortunately, our bike ride was a big disappointment. This trail is not maintained at all--weeds growing over most of the paved areas. This is most definitely not a trail to take your young children on. It wasn't marked clearly and we struggled with where it actually went and sooner than later, gave up and headed back to the Veterns Park where it was suggested that we start from. There were also too many roads with lots of traffic to cross over with little kids.

Bad trail

Very poorly marked. Crosses lots of very busy streets. Would not recommend

Horrible trail!

Horrible!!! Very poorly marked...or should I say NOT marked at all in most places. Jogs back & forth often across very busy streets. Asphalt in some places in poor comdition. Hilly. We will Never do this trail again!
