First used to move water through a pipeline to generate power for a mill, this area has been preserved for hikers. Not a hard 2 mile round trip but there is some up hill, steps, rocks and of course it’s elevated above the creek. All...More
The walk is quite easy for most anyone. The scenery is very lovely. And for some reason, the construction of the catwalk itself was most interesting to me. I think this is a great idea for a quick half day trip from Silver City or...More
We heard about the Catwalk Trail from the lady at the Silver City Visitors Center. The 5 mile drive to the trail off Hwy180 was interesting. There is a large parking lot at the canyon entrance, clean restrooms, and picnic tables. The trail and catwalks...More
Peaceful drive up a canyon to access. Spotted deer along the road. Be prepared to make unbridged crossings over running water, no problem with standard SUV. The hike up the trail is easy & rewarding. Great picnic area!
I was here maybe 5 years ago and there was no interruption of the metal catwalk all the way to the waterfall and boulder shaded pool you could swim in. Now it looks like it got torn up by repeated and violent flooding and I...More
A bit of a drive getting there from Silver City. Once there, quite a bit of the trail and catwalk is fairly easy to walk. Once the catwalk ends, you can continue the hike, but it becomes a bit more strenuous.
This was the perfect family adventure. The Catwalk Recreation Park is perfect to spend a day full of fun. The picnic area is surrounded by tress and a stream runs alongside it. The stream is perfect to wet your feet and cool off from the...More
Its a bit of a drive to get there, but worth it. Beautiful little canyon and the trail and catwalks are constructed nicely and are well maintained. Make sure you bring some lunch because the entry area has a great picnic area under big shady...More

From my recent experience, no. Its metal, in the shade and where it breaks and there is no more catwalk, jagged, big rocks and mud. Be prepared for anything, theres NO cell phone service and probably few people enjoying the... More
From my recent experience, no. Its metal, in the shade and where it breaks and there is no more catwalk, jagged, big rocks and mud. Be prepared for anything, theres NO cell phone service and probably few people enjoying the area in winter!

There are 2 basic trails one of which is designed to be handicapped accessible. It is shorter than the main trail. It is paved and has some inclines that are sort of steep. So the total weight of the person and the chair is something to consider. The general area is pretty so even if you don't decide to do the trail, I don't think it would be a complete waste of time. Given these considerations, I would try it.
I don’t think so. Do you mean Chihuahua or Yorkshire ?
I am going to add pictures of the Catwalk and bridge. Booties might be helpful to protect paws from heat, glass, goat heads, and cacti quills at other hikes.
