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. :(

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....

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.
