Genoa Trail

Genoa Trail

Open year-round, the 4-mile Genoa Trail in northeastern Minnesota begins near Eveleth and ends at the connector trail to the Iron Range Off-highway Vehicle State Recreation Area in Gilbert. The stretch between the Sherwood Forest Campground and the IROHVSRA connector trail (only) is open to ORVs. The trail was built and is maintained through the efforts of the Eveleth-Gilbert Joint Powers Trail Board.

Winter Use: OHVs are allowed on ungroomed portions of trail, but not allowed on portions groomed for snowmobiles. Ungroomed portions may be shared with snowmobiles and non-motorized uses (fatbikes, hiking,etc).
