Trekking Catalina is all set for boaters to enjoy some shore time. Catalina Island Conservancy has the new master trail system on the island with 27 miles of fresh trails. There are now 165 miles of trail or road that you can walk on this island, which means huge choice for stretching your sea legs.

Trekking Catalina is one of the elements of Imagine Catalina. Imagine Catalina was introduced in 2011 and entails a 20-year master plan of developing programs and infrastructures to make the island’s recreation, education and conservation more accessible. There are maps, the improved trails and waterless bathrooms to all help make the Island a world-class destination for outdoor enthusiasts, as well as better access points to the trails in Avalon and Two Harbors.

The public is invited to the free Trekking Catalina Launch Party, which is held at the craft brewery Brouwerij West in San Pedro, Sept. 14, starting at 6:30 p.m. New Catalina hiking maps will be provided at the event, and there will be live music, food trucks and prizes. The website for information about the event, and also a RSVP mechanism is available here.

Hiking permits are required on Catalina Island’s trails. The permits are free to ensure people can enjoy access to the land and can be obtained through the Catalina Island Conservancy’s website.
