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.
