Gila National Forest reopens Catwalk Trail

........................................................................................................................................................................................

GLENWOOD, N.M. (AP) — A scenic tourist attraction in southwestern New Mexico has reopened after repairs required by a rock fall.

The Gila National Forest says the Catwalk Trail underwent repairs required by damage from a June 2 rock fall.

The repairs included blasting to remove an outcrop and then removal of rock debris.

The Catwalk is a trail within Whitewater Canyon. Part of the trail is suspended on the side of a cliff in the canyon

The trail is only open until 1 p.m. daily. Forest officials say that’s because of the continued threat of unpredictable monsoon thunderstorms causing flooding of low crossings of New Mexico Highway 174.
