Genoa Trail

Genoa Trail

Open year-round, the 4-mile Genoa Trail in northeastern Minnesota begins near Eveleth and ends on the north end at the connector trail to the Iron Range Off-highway Vehicle State Recreation Area in Gilbert. The trail section between the Sherwood Forest Campground and the IROHVSRA connector trail to the north is the only portion of the Genoa open to ORVs. Everything south of Sherwood Forest campground is closed to ORVs. This trail is provided by the Eveleth-Gilbert Joint Powers Trail Board and maintained by the Quad Cities ATV Club.

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 users who are hiking, biking, etc.
