The Gila National Forest and Gila River riparian area have hundreds of miles of trails for hikers, horseback riders, mountain bikers and motor sports enthusiasts. The Gila's trails will lead you from the edge of the Chihuahuan desert to the brink of alpine tundra through some of the most spectacular scenery in the Southwest. The historic Catwalk Trail and the Continental Divide National Scenic Trail are two of our more famous routes but there are many others just as fascinating.

Some of our favorite hiking destinations are:

The Catwalk ~ Just 5 miles north of Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals is Glenwood, NM where you'll find a very unique, beautiful and easily accessed hiking trail. Beginning with the discovery of gold and silver in the rugged Mogollon Mountains around 1893, the Catwalk was born and is located above Whitewater Canyon. The small town of Graham (also known as Whitewater) grew around a mill, located on the west hillside near the present day of parking area, only lasting about 10 years. In the mid-1930's the Civilian Conservation Corps built the Catwalk, a bridge system that was washed away after the Whitewater-Baldy Fire. It was rebuilt again and is now open for approximately .5 miles from the parking lot. This is a very accessible area and easily hiked by all ages. You have to hike .5 miles from the parking lot to begin your hike of approximately 2.5 miles. There is a $3.00 parking charge.

City of Rocks Near Double E Ranch
City of Rocks in Deming NM Near Double E Ranch and New Mexico Cabin Rentals

City of Rocks ~ City of Rocks State Park is midway between Silver City and DemingNM off US 180. Turn on NM 61 for four miles to the park access road. Until sometime around 1200 A.D., Spanish conquistadores travelled through this same area of southwestern New Mexico on their journey north just as the Mimbres Indians did. The Mimbres left arrowheads and spectacularly painted pottery shards as evidence of their culture. In just six other places in the entire world will visitors find these unique rock formations looking very much like a small city. Streets, houses, chimneys and even courtyard areas can still be found. City of Rocks Park is home to deer, antelope, jackrabbits and javelinas along with well over 35 species of birds, including Golden Eagles. Botanically, this desert location is filled with Yucca, giant Century plants, bunny ear cacti and cow's tongue. Remember to take plenty of water and appropriate walking shoes. A hat and sunscreen would be important, too! Fee: $5/day.
