Public Trail opened covering the length of Catalina Island...

-
Catalina Island Conservancy opens 37 mile Trans-Catalina trail to the public


http://catalinaconservancy.org/visitors/recreation/trails.cfm

Hikers are now able to travel virtually the entire length of the Island on a dedicated walking path - the 37.2-mile-long "Trans-Catalina Trail." Cyclists will also be able to enjoy nearly the entire lengths of the Island, using multi-use portions of the Trail and alternate routes.

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...

campsites, etc are available across the island...

Photo's of the trail, etc:
