Biking in Two Harbors, Trails and Views Like No Other
Mountain biking on Santa Catalina Island is a must-do for serious bikers. From Two Harbors, several trails provide direct access to the island’s rugged interior and beautiful shoreline. The dirt roads of the island interior offer challenging biking and awesome views. Most of the trails are judged moderate to advanced, with each providing fantastic views. Due to the Island’s rugged interior, mountain bikes with all terrain knobby tires are required and riders must wear helmets that meet the safety standards set by either the American National Standards Institute (ANSI) or Snell Memorial Foundation. Just want to cruise around the village? That’s okay, too. Just watch for pedestrians.
Non-permitted biking is allowed within the City of Avalon and the village of Two Harbors. Bike permits are required to ride into the interior of the island and are a benefit of membership with the Catalina Island Conservancy. Memberships start at $35 per year and may be obtained at the Conservancy's Office in Avalon, located at 125 Clarissa Avenue from 8:30 a.m. - 4:30 p.m. daily (may close for lunch). Permits are also available at Catalina's Airport-in-the-Sky (310-510-0143) and Two Harbors Visitors Services (310-510-4205) during regular hours of operation.
Most of the cross-channel passenger boats transport bicycles for a fee with advance reservations. In case you did not bring your own bike, rentals are available at the Two Harbors Dive & Recreation Center. Every rental includes a helmet, map and a permit. Bikes are allowed on the Safari Bus for a fee of $5.00 per bike.
