I have a favorite weekend hike in Genoa. I depart my front door and hike the Eagle Ridge Trailhead and do the Genoa Loop Trail. I has about 1500′ of altitude gain it crosses 5 streams (refreshment for the dogs) and lots of good views. On a good weekend I do the hike on Saturday and again on Sunday. We try to depart relatively early in them morning (6:30AM) so that we finish before it gets too hot in the summer. The 11+ mile hike takes about 4 hours including stream breaks for the dogs.
