Once up on the Divide Road, hikers have a bald eagle's eye view of both sides of the Island. Continuing on past the Haypress Recreation Area, hikers are treated to sweeping views of Middle Canyon and Cape Canyon before reaching the beau- tiful Black Jack Campground. From Black Jack Campground, the trail leads hikers through Cottonwood Canyon to the Airport in the Sky, where refreshments and supplies can be enjoyed at the DC3 Gifts & Grill before the downhill trek down Sheep Chute Canyon to the Little Harbor Campground, overlooking the Pacific Ocean on the windward side of the Island. The Trans-Catalina Trail con- tinues north to the colorful boat- ing community of Two Harbors at: the, tstand-'s Asthmus.:: There,, hikers can take advantage of the campgrounds at Two Harbors, or Wherever you hike on Catalina, it's always beautiful.
