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 paved trail was extended in 2010 from Plumb Road to Weise Road in Galena and includes a pedestrian-bike bridge over Old 3C Highway, following the northwestern shoreline of the Hoover Reservoir along a scenic nature preserve.
The trail can be easily accessed at any one of the main cross streets, including Maxtown Road, Mt. Royal, Freeman, Big Walnut, and Lewis Center. There are also foot and bike accessible entry points at Highland Lakes Avenue and Interlachen Avenue, and nearby Westerville Elementary School (at Freeman & Old 3C). You can park at
