The Trailhead, at 708 Crescent in Avalon, is the perfect place to begin your Catalina adventure! It is the flagship facility for Catalina Island Conservancy, serving as the gateway to the Island's wildlands. Resources found at the Trailhead help you make the most of your time exploring the Island's 42,000+ acres of open space. Visitors to Catalina Island maximize their experience with a stop at the three-story, 9,000-sq.-ft. Trailhead. While there, obtain hiking and biking permits, detailed information on campgrounds, native flora and fauna, ecology and history, and even venture out on an Eco Tour. 

The Trailhead's current hours of operation are 8:30 a.m to 5:30 p.m.  The Trailhead store is currently having a clearance sale!

Hours change seasonally and may not reflect the hours of Toyon Grill. We are closed on Christmas and Thanksgiving day.
