Added by Jean-Claude Linossi

Challenging 1 mile trail walk along a historic mining waterway in Southern New Mexico. Sections of the trail are on suspended planks above the river.

Great hike along a canyon above Whitewater river. You descent to the river bed when there is no high water. There is a picnic area and a place to relax along the river. Walking on the planks is quite fun.
