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.

This photo is pretty indicative of trail width and steepness of hillside along trail. Plenty of room to walk. But if this concerns you, it is not the hike for you.
