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....

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

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!
