The CIC Summit Vista Garden is an enclosure just above Avalon where you can meander among rare and common native plants, some endemic to Catalina Island. There is an adjacent field that is often frequented by bison, so you may be able to glimpse these introduced animals while picnicking at, or walking around, the garden.
To visit the Roy Rose Garden, book a tour into the interior or hike along the Trans-Catalina trail!
