Map and Detailed Description
Prior to the start of our tour, all participants are given on board training by our experienced guides in our controlled, safe training area. Training includes all aspects of safe Segway use.
Our Hogback Adventure begins at the Tour Plaza, proceeds to Country Club Drive, a short distance up Camino Del Sol for an advanced lesson in the parking area behind the Country Club.
From there past the Catalina Resort on Camino Del Monte, the ride continues past The Philip Wrigley Family home to the Old Stage Road, where there is another interlude for advanced training and practice. Farther up the Stage Road with its stunning vistas, to the Hogback Gate to the interior of the island. Here we may observe Zip Line Riders. Then we’ll proceed down Chime Tower Road above Descanso Beach to a bird’s eye perspective of the Casino, and a spectacular view of Avalon and its harbor, past the Chime Tower itself, the Zane Grey Pueblo, down Marilla Avenue to town and an eventual triumphant return.
Stunning vistas and spectacular scenery abound.
