Genoa Peak is a high mountain peak at an elevation of 2.745m (9,005ft) above the sea level, located in Douglas County, in the northwestern part of the U.S. state of Nevada. There are some parts that can be tricky.
The summit is located within the Toiyabe National Forest. The road is called Genoa Peak Road (14N32). It’s rough, tippy and bumpy at times. The road is usually impassable in winters. Great trail for experienced wheelers. The trail is narrow with few places for passing so meeting someone can be a challenge.
In order to drive this road up, you need a high clearance 4x4 vehicle due to a couple steep sections with large, loose rocks. The trail is very steep. At the summit there’s a cell tower. The road is usually impassable from October to June (weather permitting). It’s 9.5 miles long. The trail has plenty of big rocks, deep, deep ruts and tight corners. It offers great views of Lake Tahoe. Easy to get lost. Stay safe and always drive with someone else.
