The River Fork Ranch Trail System is one mile east of Genoa on Genoa Lane at the confluence of the East and West Fork of the Carson River. The property is owned by The Nature Conservancy. The trail system is shown on the Genoa Trail System map. More information about River Fork Ranch can be found on the Nature Conservancy website.
There are two trails at River Fork Ranch, the 0.75 mile East Brockliss Loop and the 2.0 mile West Fork Trail. Both trails are flat. There are two narrow boardwalks on the East Brockliss Loop. The West Fork Trail parallels the West Fork Carson River, connecting Genoa Lane to Muller Lane with panoramic views. Except during wet periods, this trail is relatively easy to access by wheelchair users as it follows a dirt ranch road. There are also interpretive signs at the ranch house about the area. To protect the native animals, including nesting birds, turtles and frogs, dogs are not permitted on the trails. Hikers, bikers, and equestrians are permitted.
