Several people recommended the Cat Walk, saying that it is now shorter due to flooding a few years ago. But we still found it wonderful and walkable. We were told that Americans with Disabilities had a good deal to do with the restoration. On our way from Mogollon to Silver City and it was a welcome respite to stretch our... More

Great for all ages! Very nice and clean. Beautiful scenery. Does take some time to get there and some time to go on the main trail. It's about half mile long but smooth surface to walk on. There are several trails to use.

First time seeing the catwalk since it was destroyed several years ago in a flood. Unfortunately, I never got to see the Catwalk before it was destroyed. Nice to see that most of it was rebuilt. Contractors did a nice job. Worth a stop if you are passing through Glenwood.

This is virtually a spot in the road - but we needed lunch so we decided to chance the 5-mile drive to the Forest Service-maintained picnic spot. It was a beautiful, tranquil, well-maintained picnic area. I believe one can also camp there - although camping equipment would have to be walked in - since no cars are allowed past the... More

If you are in the area this is a good take in - not worth a long detour. Only a short distance into the canyon is open due to major flooding several years ago. The path is paved and suitable for sandals and children.

We enjoyed easy walk for kids and nice swimming holes for kids to play in. IF you have been in the past it has been rebuilt after floods and not completely finished so as of July 2016 you could only go half way up but still worth the trip

You smell the sycamore trees long before you get to this scenic and historic site near the Gila. Drive to the parking area and be sure to notice the remains of the old mill on the hill that was the end point for two waterlines strung along the canyon walls in the late 1800's and early 1900's. Recently a forest... More

The Catwalk is a nice little walk and a place to sit and relax. There's a little stream where you can put your feet and chase tadpoles. If you were expecting a hiking experience, then look at some trails around Glenwood, there are a few around the area.

We stopped by on the 4th of July, entrance was free, was very busy, parking lot full. Beautiful place, amazing history, apparently only a portion of walk is open but new handicap accessible ramp/walkway is newer and very nicely done.
