Significance: The Genoa Peak Road spur segments were part of a major log transport network associated with the Comstock mining era. This secondary spur segment once interconnected with an elaborate network of primary and lesser skid roads. The network was the main arterial system for wood transport to Spooner Summit, the key lumberyard for the C&TL&F Co. The period of significance for this lumbering activity is 1873-1898. The spur road has retained its integrity and its overall character as a 19th century Comstock-era haul road.
