A decade in the making, the new 37-mile Trans-Catalina Island Trail spotlights the varied landscapes, dramatic changes in elevation and different ecosystems of the island’s interior, where most tourists never venture.
The Trans-Catalina Island Trail climbs, dips and winds through the island’s back country, which has remained largely unseen by the public and is essentially unchanged since Tongva Indians roamed the 76-square-mile island going back thousands of years.
Hiking permits are required by the Catalina Island Conservancy. Permits can also be obtained at these locations:

The TALIESIN ARTIST RESIDENCY PROGRAM is inviting experienced visual artists to engage and respond to the unique characteristics of the architectural sites of Taliesin and Taliesin West and their vibrant communities.
The Residency Program is open to visual artists living in the U.S. or abroad with a graduate-level academic background and/or a record of work within the art field, focusing on site-specific installation and contemporary works. Priority will be given to artists who respond to natural, architectural or community settings.
The Taliesin Artist Residency is based at Taliesin, in Spring Green, Wisconsin and Taliesin West in Scottsdale, Arizona. Frank Lloyd Wright established the Taliesin Fellowship in 1932, which was based on the idea of the allied arts fostered in a community of learners that could be an alternative to the traditional university. The program developed into what we know today as Taliesin, the Frank Lloyd Wright School of Architecture. From its origins, Taliesin has served as a living, working, educational space, forming a creative and diverse community of professional architects, artists, faculty, students and staff.
Individuals must be willing to participate inTaliesin life and actively interact with community.
Applications will be accepted once a year and reviewed by a selection committee.
