From US 180, turn right on Catwalk Road, also known as NM Rte. 174. The trailhead is at the end of the narrow, winding, and dip-filled road, about 5 miles away.

This is a rather sheltered area and a number of picnic tables are available right near the entrance. It's a fairly easy hike up the path before the catwalk begins. Nice water flowing sounds. I suspect it could be nice and cool during warmer weather....More

I had been looking forward to hike the catwalk trail for weeks. Unfortunately, the experience was somewhat affected by the many mosquitoes - super annoying. The trail is really nice, but we got the impression that the damages from the last flash flood aren't still...More

Stopped there on our way to Silver City - wished we had allowed more time to hike beyond the amazing catwalk structure. Very scenic. Went the week before christmas and we were the only ones there.

Suspended by bolts in rock, this trail over a scenic creek is most unusual. Easily navigated by those who are physically challenged. Rock canyon is quite narrow and you are suspended above it as you traverse it.

This is a great, short hike to stretch your legs. $3/car or use your National Parks and Federal Recreational Lands Passes. There are vault toilets, picnic tables, and the biggest Arizona Sycamore trees I have ever seen. You can easily access Whitewater Creek along the...More

I don't recall exactly, but it was not very long. I think between a half mile to 1 mile. You can make the hike longer if you continue past the catwalk.

It's open, but just not the entire length of the original one, but still worth the trip.
