A Diamond
in the
Rough
BY TOM DONALDSON

IN A REMOTE AREA of the Gila National Forest near Glenwood,

CATWALK TRAIL
RECONSTRUCTION
@Constr uctor Ma g

New Mexico, about 250 miles southwest of Albuquerque, you will
find a diamond in the rough - a gem hidden among the canyons
and mesas: the historic - and newly restored - Catwalk Trail.
Originally constructed in the 1930s by the Civilian Conservation
Corps, the trail follows the path of a pipeline built in the 1890s
to serve an old mining settlement. The pipeline was suspended
on narrow canyon walls, in places as much as 20 feet above the
canyon floor. Despite being considered an engineering marvel at
the time, the pipeline needed constant maintenance. To access
the sections needing repairs the workers had to walk on the
pipeline itself. This led them to nickname it "the catwalk." The
pipeline is long gone, but the name stuck.
