I hate to see litter on the trails. Good grief, pack it in - pack it out. We eat and drink on the trail all the time...but I don't throw the packages/bottles down.

There is a lot of litter in the back of Tyrrell Park that was blown in by hurricane's. Wish it would all just disappear!

Actually, here in Oregon I see very little trash along the trails. Not because we have fewer people tossing their trash, we just have more people willing to stop and pick it up. Now, when I lived in NM...it was pretty **** trashy.

A lot of us have to haul our trash to the dump (rural) and pay per bag. One day in May is a freebie for basically yard cleanings but any one who cleans the roadside is never charged.

My daughter and I ride on a couple of hundred acres of her and her neighbor's land. NO ONE has permission to be on that land except us and a neighbor who no longer goes out. You'd be surprised how much trash - beer cans, KFC boxes, garbage bags, etc, that we find on land where people shouldn't even be - it's maddening. No one cares if somone wants to come on the land to picnic, but at LEAST they could clean up their own messes!!!! And of course, I'm always worried that our dogs will come across a trespasser and either get shot or accused of biting and we'll get sued, or we'll get shot by poachers during hunting season,,,,,,,,, I guess I had to rant, too!

Rant all you want!! I think it's about time something like littering on the trails gets brought into the light. The one thing that is really upsetting me is that all the litter that I see on the trails is from trail riders, not hikers or bicyclists, but trail riders and to me that makes all of us other trail riders look bad.

Trashy people do trashy things.

Saw this on beaches too at Gulf.

Just amazes me how people act.

Horses make me a better person.

I get so tired of the F*** You attitude. Custom Canines, Post No Trespassing Signs. That covers hunting. They can't hunt without trespassing. It also looks after no shooting. No point in shooting something if you're not allowed to fetch it.

You would think horse people being they are connected to animals would be more connected to the environment and show more respect and appreciation. But owning animals does not necessarily mean you are "connected" at all, sad.

I've seen it with Trail Vehicles as well. I ride with a lot of guys who build rigs for rock climbing up really rough terrain and our group always stay behind to ride the trails last to do a clean up run after a weekend of wheeling. The last fund raiser ride we did for the Wounded Warrior program there were 25 of us who got stayed Sunday after the last riders left and we gathered up 12 bags of trash over 300 acres of trails. We gathered 15 bags of trash around the campsite that is on 15 acres.

The few horse trails that I've been on around here stay pretty clean from what I have seen. I could see keeping one of those reach it gadgets folded up on the saddle to help pick up trash along the trails without having to dismount so often.
