When it comes to hiking, Catalina Island cannot be beat.  No other Channel Island features the diversity that  Catalina has to offer.  More than 165 miles of trails and roads beckon all levels of hikers.  An assortment of loop trails give day hikers a great glimpse at a variety of Island locales, returing them to where they started.  Of course, the grand-daddy of them all is the Trans-Catalina Trail, a 38.5 miles trail that traverses the entire Island, beginning at Avalon, stretching out to Parson's Landing on the West End, looping back to Two Harbors for the finish.  For more information on hikes throughout and across the Island, click on the Hiking Trails box below.  

To purchase a map with additional features for only $4.99, please visit the
Trailhead visitor center, Airport in the Sky, Wrigley Memorial & Botanic Garden or Two Harbor Visitor Services.
