I have been visiting the Catwalk trail for many years. I just absolutely love it there. I have not seen the latest renovations but I will post pictures soon.

…but the Forest Service stupidly removed the uniquely sturdy catwalk structures fearing floods might wash it all away. Once upon a time you could traverse sheer canyon walls with ease through a narrow canyon gorge but, sadly, no more. The charm that entranced many, many people over many decades is gone.

The trail is closed as of January 2015 but is being rebuilt. No indication of when it will reopen. We drove 4 hours to get here only to find it closed. :(

Old, hisotoric, very nica and clean. Not the standart of today, just good old Americana. Owned by a very nice German Lady.... More

First of all, the ranger station in Glenwood, NM was closed tight mid-morning on a Saturday. We drove toward the Catwalk Trail, crossed a dangerous bridge with high running water, only to discover the road was closed to the Catwalk Trail! The town of Glenwood is suffering because of the closure of this supposed wonderful hike and site. We are... More

We had been recommended to visit the Catwalk in Deming but unbeknown to us the majority of the trail has been destroyed by fire and then flood leaving a pleasant half mile ramble up the canyon until the route is barred. This attraction is the only one of significance in the area and apparently had a big draw. It needs... More

I have been to this area twice before several years ago and have enjoyed going through canyon on the catwalk. This time it was not possible because the whole structure had been washed off. According to the plaque at the entrance floods are not rare and they have had over 15 floods in the past 40 years, or was it... More

after the big forest fire of 2012, the drainage for the whitewater creek[catwalk area] was severally damaged. there have been major floods at least two years. at present you can't go on the catwalk, but can still pick nick and walk some of the trails. a lot of the big trees are still there and the creek is crystal clear....
