The Trans-Catalina Trail Opens

Native Americans, explorers, and trappers have all blazed trails on Catalina. A network of horse trails from the time of cattle and sheep ranching on the Island exist as well. Many of these "original" trails were undoubtedly converted to the Island's modern road and trail system.

But now, for the first time, hikers can travel virtually the entire length of the Island on a dedicated walking path - the 37.2-mile-long "Trans-Catalina Trail." Cyclists, too, can enjoy nearly the entire lengths of the Island using multi-use portions of the Trail and alternate routes.
