No longer there

This wonderful place is no longer open. Sad but true. Call the forest service if you are doubtful.. No sure if it will reopen.

this place is beautiful, BUT CLOSED. A year ago a small portion of the park was open, now it is completely closed.

My family and I have hiked this trail many times during the late 80's and early 90's, before the man-made improvements were implemented. It was a bit rough hiking in some spots but still safe for a 4 year old. Have gone back since the improvements which provide much easier access. But the price of the easy access is that... More

kids and us adults enjoyed the place very much, jumped in ice cold water. Had picknick, and spent all day in the beautiful nature, with flowers, and birds singing and praising the beauty of God's hands. We recoment this place for everyone! Totally awsome !!!

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
