Part of the Ohio to Erie Trail, the Genoa Trail runs between Northgate Way in Westerville and Weise Road in Galena. The trail parallels the east side of State Route 3 and is separated from the road by a nice corridor of trees, shading nearly the entire length of the trail.
The 35.7 miles of the orange-blazed main trail is laid out in a large loop. The loop is bisected by SR125 (north loop and south loop). Both loops are EXTREMELY strenuous and the elevations are steep and provide zero switchbacks. Very challenging trail. Usually a multi-night trip utilizing 7 camps.
