This Canyon Catwalk in New Mexico Will Take You Someplace Unforgettable

In the village of Glenwood, nestled in the Gila National Forest, lies a hiking trail unlike any other in New Mexico.

A pathway takes hikers deep into Whitewater Canyon, following the path of Whitewater Creek. It replicates the route taken by an old, steel pipeline, which was installed at the end of the 19th century to provide the water needed for mining operations in the area.

The Catwalk Trail has been closed but it’s scheduled to reopen by May 28th, 2016. Have you been? Share your experiences of this unique trail.
