Thad and BZ Jones Hikes

Join the Catalina Marineros for two great hikes on March 20 and 21, 2020.

Honoring brothers Thad and Graham "BZ" Jones, the late world-class sailors and dedicated Conservancy supporters, the two-day Thad Jones Trans-Catalina hike or the one-day BZ Jones Cross-Catalina hike will explore the Island's gorgeous terrain for a weekend of exploration, mixing and mingling. And new this year, the post-hike celebration dinner will take place at Conservancy's Trailhead visitor center prepared by Toyon Grill. We hope you can join us!  

The Thad Jones Hike 30-mile hike starts with boarding transportation in Avalon on Friday, March 20 to Emerald Bay. The trail leads East to Two Harbors where you can take a break for lunch, then onto Little Harbor via Banning House Road and spectacular single track ridge trails. Participants will camp overnight at Little Harbor and enjoy a BBQ dinner with fireside sing along.  The following day Thad Jones hikers will connect with the BZ Jones hikers for lunch, then finish the hike to the shore which concludes with a short boat trip back to Avalon.  Please note this is for experienced hikers.

The BZ Jones Cross-Catalina Hike is a one-day hike which explores the Island's gorgeous terrain as hikers venture from the windward side of the Island to the leeward, meeting Thad Jones Hikers for lunch along the way.  This moderate hike with hills is approximately 9 miles.  More information will be provided soon!

This event will sell-out quick!  Don't delay, register below!
