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.
