Trans Catalina Trail & Camping Services

We offer a variety of services on the TransCatalina Trail depending on what your group's needs are, what campsite you are staying at and for how long. 


Gear Haul Only

Our Gear Haul service is a basic service to move your gear from campsite to campsite along the Trans Catalina Trail. You are able to pack for camping versus backpacking and have us haul all your gear/coolers/food supplies along the trail and delivered directly to your campsite each day or for any of the legs of the trip you wish. Our gear haul service is flat rate. (Click here for more info on our gear haul ).
