The Catwalk, Whitewater Canyon, New Mexico

About an hour drive from Silver City is Whitewater Canyon with the famous Catwalk ~ a 2.2 mile round trip hike that leads hikers through the canyon following a now unused metal pipeline which onetime supplied water to the nearby mining town of Whitewater. We took the drive today (not the most exciting) and enjoyed the walk/hike.  To be honest, for us, although it was an interesting hike and we enjoyed it, it was not worth the 2-hour round-trip drive – we’ve done similar walks/hikes, so it simply was not unique for us. That being said, many people we passed along the way were in awe of the hike, so if it’s not something you’ve done before, this would be interesting.  The hike is rated easy in the beginning, then moderately strenuous towards the end ~ we found it on the easier side, but then again, we’re big hikers – this was definitely a challenge for some of the people we met on the trail.

We will be following your trail, but will be driving the RV and staying in Forest Service campgrounds after we leave Silver City. Plan to do the Catwalk since it's along our route.
