Recent floods sent a 20 foot high wall of water down the creek, destroying the Catwalk, Not sure if it will get rebuilt. Source: KOAT TV Channel 7 Albuquerque

this was my first visit and even thought it isn't fully re-opened from the flood damages , caused by the big forest fires, it is a beautiful area. call the local ranger station before you plan your trip, as it is also closed down, during possible flash flood times. the rangers are doing what they can to get thinks fixed,...

trail was partially closed due to fires in 2012 but we enjoyed exploring the area. A better hike given the closure was the San Francisco Hot Spring.

Sadly, the fire from a few years ago has closed the Catwalk. I'm not sure when it will reopen. It was a nice place to picnic, but we weren't allowed to go further than 1/2 a mile or so into the canyon.

We had visited the Catwalk 4 years ago with our grandchildren & they keep asking when we can go back. My husband & I were camping near Glenwood and decided to hike the Catwalk again because we absolutely loved it! So disappointing to learn they actually dismantled almost all of it in fear of flash floods that might destroy the... More

I have never seen a place like this any where on earth. It's a fantastic canyon and a wonderfull walk. A lot of it is also wheelchair accessable.

Not exactly easy to get to or a good place to be on a hot summers day. The walk up the narrow canyon is beyond the reach of anyone with any health problems. Nice views, cool streams to wade in if your up to it. I wouldn't drive a long distance to visit just the cat walk.

The sign on the highway says Catwalk Open but only part of the picnic area is open. The actual Catwalk part of the trail has been removed and access is limited to the first 1/4 mile of trail. Not worth the time and gas.

Truly one of the nicest walks in New Mexico. We weren't able to visit on this trip, but we have been their before when we were traveling through. However, I heard they had to take down several of the bridges (cool swinging bridges) due to flood conceds from recent fires in the Gila. You may want to check first.
