Trans Catalina TrailThe Trans-Catalina Trail (TCT), is a trail experience so unique that it is one of the best trail adventures on earth. It winds the length and breadth of beautiful Santa Catalina Island for a total of 37.2 scenic miles starting on the eastern end of the island in Avalon and traversing to the western end of Starlight beach beyond Two Harbors and the Isthmus.
Gear HaulBackcountry trail support services, including gear haul, are ideal for hikers, bikers, and campers who dread carrying heavy gear such as your tent, water, food, wood, etc. while you explore Catalina Island.
Comfort CampingComfort camping, similar to glamping, is designed to satisfy your craving for the outdoors and your desire for a good meal, nice glass of wine, and a comfortable bed – like a hotel, only your room opens to a stunning Catalina Island landscape instead of a lobby!
