Members of the Western U.P. Trail Association and Gogebic Range Trail Authority work to clean up Trail 2 in western Gogebic County Saturday.

The Gogebic Range Trail Authority held a cleanup session Saturday afternoon along Trail 2, a snowmobile/ATV trail in western Gogebic County.

Volunteers met in Bessemer early Saturday morning before gathering in Hurley to begin cleaning the trail back into Michigan.

Volunteers were headed up by GRTA treasurer Lisa Hetfeld, GRTA secretary Christina Youngberg and ATV club president Ross Kolesar.

A total of 22 people participated in the cleanup, including members of the Western U.P. Trail Association. The group worked well into the afternoon.

"We want to get everything cleaned up before the ATV season starts," she added, "Plus, it gives us an idea of the trail conditions and the preparation needed."

"It's a new project," said Hetfeld, "We'll be doing this every May and the public is welcome to join."
