really sorry to see the island so regulated that you have to pay for everything... even hiking.
Yes, the hike is free but you go thru the fee area to get to the summit. The nature center plants were fairly redundant and most were not labeled.
We would have rented a bike for under $10 but you have to have a permit that costs $35.. oH.. it is good for a year.. well, yoo hooo... we live in Oregon.. not across the bay,
We were even stopped from walking around the outer roadway.. a paved legal road.
I loved .. repeat LOVED .. Catalina about 10 years ago... this time I was showing my hubby how great it was, and we couldnt enjoy most of the island.
