For those wanting to walk the full path, it is a commitment.
Tammy Lillie of Hebron, Illinois, recently walked the whole path. She started at 6 a.m. and, according to her pedometer, in total she walked 22.3 miles. She packed water and food and only stopped for bathroom breaks. In total she recorded 51,025 steps in 8 hours and 11 minutes.

“I wasn’t expecting what I was in for. But I’m probably glad I didn’t know what I was in for. But it was worth it. It was beautiful.”
She hiked the path with a group of friends. Seven started at Library Park in Downtown Lake Geneva. Five made it all the way to the end. The other two made it as far as they could and then phoned a friend to come and pick them up along the way. One of them has already gone back and completed the rest of the walk, Lillie said.
