26.7-Miles of New Hiking Trails Coming to Catalina Island

If you are planning a trip to Catalina Island, you may have the opportunity to hike 26.7-miles of new trails as an expansion project began in October. This marks the largest expansion since the 37.2-mile Trans-Catalina Trail opened. According the president and CEO of the Catalina Island Conservancy, Tony Budrovich, the new expansion project is an environmentally-friendly and sustainable way to increase hiking opportunities on the island.The conservation of the land is important, so consolidation and upgrades to existing, unofficial trails that have either been created by wildlife or high foot traffic is a major part of the plan.

Budrovich further stated that the additional 26.7-miles of new trail, as well as the already established trails on the island, will give visitors the chance to experience and explore a location that is similar to what California used to be when it was wild and undeveloped. Additionally, the new trails will provide some of the most breathtaking views of Catalina Island.
