Biking is a great way to see Catalina’s Wildlands!

Cyclists on Catalina enjoy the fresh air and challenging twists and turns of the Island’s 40 miles of trails and roads open to mountain biking.

Freewheeler Bike Pass

To bike in the wildlands of Catalina a Freewheeler Bike Pass is required. The Freewheeler Bike Pass is available through the purchase of a Conservancy membership, starting at $35.  You can show your membership card at all Conservancy locations where our friendly and helpful staff will issue you the permit placard that goes on your bike.  You can also redeem your bike pass at Two Harbors Visitor Services.

For your safety, we recommed all-terrain bikes— those equipped with multi-speeds and all-terrain tires — for biking in Catalina’s wild interior.  Hard-shelled helmets are required for all bikers.  Biking is not permitted at night.

Electric bikes are permitted, but must have pedals.

Please note that wildlife on Catalina Island, as in Wildlands, can cause serious injury or even death. Please do not approach or harass wildlife and always maintain a safe distance.

Take plenty of drinking water on your ride, be sure to stay on approved bike routes.
