I expected this to be simple, but it seems linking to a category named "catalog" isn't as straight forward as I expected.

I've got a category structure similar to the following:

- Default Category
    - Catalog
        - Mens
        - Womens

Linking to a child category works


...but linking to a category called "catalog" doesn't

This will redirect me to the home page.


Renaming "catalog" to "catalog2" works...


The Question

Does this mean /catalog is a reserved route in Magento 2?


Yeah This is reserved rout path which you are not supposed to use.

you can refer the core module to check any path.


check this file where rout is defined for the catalog module.
