The Genoa Loop is 8.2 miles long. The lower 1.4 miles of this loop goes through the town of Genoa. The least strenuous direction to do the loop by bike or foot 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. Only experienced horses and riders should use this portion of trail. Mountain bikers should also take caution, particularly the switchback locations. Trail can be very rocky in the spring. the trail is also not recommend for beginners, or riders who do not like to climb.
