It's an amazing a must see, the catwalk and the views and sounds of the water running thru the canyon. their are two treks, unless necessary go the difficult trek and go back via the easy, very different views from both sides. BTW the cost for this is the standard $3 fee so have single dollar bills or check.

It is a 1 mile round trip hike. It is extremely pretty. They did an excellent job with the rebuild of Catwalk trail. I had my doubts that the new trail would be any match for what it was in the old days, I was very pleasantly surprised.

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.

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
