Imagine Catalina is a multi-decade project to promote conservation, preserve Catalina Island, and introduce people to more of the island’s beauty beyond the town of Avalon. The best part for hikers? The 38-mile Trans-Catalina Trail has been expanded. Originally scheduled to open this summer, the trails were delayed by torrential rain, but they’re now ready for exploration.
