“A Genoa Trail System classic - this loop hits the area's highlights.”— Tom Robson
This loop hits Genoa Canyon, the hardest section of trail to start, and ends at the bottom of Sierra Canyon Trail.
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.
