The Genoa Trail System is about 17 miles of non-motorized trails in the Genoa area. All trails are non-motorized and open to runners, mountain bikes, equestrians and dogs. The two main trails are the Discovery Trail and Sierra Canyon Trail. The Genoa Loop and Eagle Ridge Loop comprise portions of these two trails with the lower sections following roads in and around Genoa to complete the loops.

Cellphone coverage is available along most of the trails. No fires are allowed throughout the year. There is no water on the upper half of the Sierra Canyon Trail and usually nowhere on the Tahoe Rim Trail between Kingsbury North and Spooner Summit Trailheads. The town of Genoa is a great place to relax before or after your trail excursion where you can find somewhere to eat or drink, shop, or read about the area history.

Camping & Lodging

Dispersed camping is not practical because of the steep terrain, however, flat areas near the Tahoe Rim Trail offer dispersed camping opportunities. Standard camping guidelines along trails are to camp at least 300 feet from the trail and 200 feet from water sources.

Food & Drink

After the Run: Local Favorites

Brooks' Bar & Deck at Edgewood Tahoe The Summer Breeze salad is the best...but get the goat cheese on the side...unless you REALLY like goat cheese.
Friday's Station Steak & Seafood Grill Crab bisque= off da hook!!
15 Highway 50, Stateline NV — (877) 346-4642
Sage Room Steak House get the filet mignon !
Cinnabon Everything the small and big buns
hwy 50, Stateline NV — (775) 588-2411
Super Tacos Great cheap Mexican food. It has outdoor seating and perfect for eating and mountain watching.
Fire + Ice Personally, I don't like picking my own food combinations and standing around forever to have the food cooked...especially not at $30 a person. Come for the fire pits & drinks- skip the food.
Base Camp Pizza Good food and drinks. Very generous pours :)
The Loft Theatre-Lounge-Dining The table-side magician is amazing. Great restaurant, lounge, and gorgeous theatre with nightly shows.
Blue Dog Gourmet Pizza Not gunna lie... The pizza here was awesome!
Taqueria Jimenez $1 tacos ftw.
Maya's Mexican Grill A tiny little place that has some delicious Mexican grub! Try the breakfast burrito with chorizo.
Driftwood Cafe Best breakfast in the village
California Burger Co. Great burgers and live music
Lotus Pho surprisingly decent pho in Tahoe. grilled pork is also delicious. Thai tea is super strong, be prepared for caffeine high.
IHOP Put napkin under pancake plate to force syrup to flow to the side with room to collect it. Less spilling.
Himmel Haus The finest food and beer in South Lake Tahoe. The homemade pickles are legendary and they have Hacker on tap!!!
Goodfellas Pizza Me gustó la pizza de Goodfellas Pizza. Por $20 tuvimos una deliciosa pizza de pollo barbacoa con aguacate para 3 personas y nos sobró casi la mitad.
Blue Angel Cafe & Catering Co. Great relaxed apres ski atmosphere, and good food.
Sprouts Cafe Tofu bowl? Don't do it. It doesn't have any flavor. Plenty of other things on the menu that are well worth your time and hard earned cash.
