GYPSUM —The Rocky Mountain Sport Riders trails group turned out in force on June 18 to clean up Trail Gulch Road north of the Interstate 70 interchange in Gypsum.

Items illegally dumped in the area included countless old tires, decomposing furniture, waste construction materials and general trash. There was also a substantial amount of target shooting debris.

By the time they were done, trash filled a large Dumpster. The work was coordinated with the town of Gypsum and with the U.S. Bureau of Land Management.

“With a focus on removing highly visible debris, the lower Trail Gulch Road area now shows significant improvement,” said Mitch Hayne, of Eagle, who assisted with the effort.

Rocky Mountain Sport Riders is a family-oriented motorcycle club dedicated to preserving and expanding riding opportunities in Colorado. The group supports balanced and responsible use of public lands while promoting respect, education and stewardship of the environment. The club has conducted trail cleanup operations throughout the lower valley, including recent work at Cottonwood Pass, Gypsum Creek, Spring Creek and Hardscrabble Road.
