Update

A Genoa Trail System classic - this loop hits the area's highlights.

Tom Robson

Overview

This classic loop starts at the Snowshoe Lane/Centennial Drive intersection and works through the town of Genoa proper to the singletrack trails.

This loop hits Genoa Canyon, the hardest section of trail to start, and ends at the bottom of Sierra Canyon Trail.
Features: River/Creek — Views

Description

The Genoa Loop is 8.2 miles long. The lower 1.4 miles of this loop goes through the town of Genoa, following the roads between the Sierra Canyon and Genoa Canyon access points. Those wanting to shuttle vehicles between the two access points would have a 6.8-mile run.

Parking is available just about anywhere on the Genoa streets such as near Genoa Park and Mormon Station State Historic Park. The least strenuous direction to do the loop is likely counterclockwise starting in Sierra Canyon.

There is just over a half mile of trail in lower Genoa Canyon that is narrow with very steep drop offs, tight switchbacks and limited sight lines. Though certainly allowed, this section of trail is not advised for equestrians because of this challenging terrain.
