Gypsum Creek Road and Lede Reservoir - Eagle County
Aliases: Lede Reservoir
Ownership: None Listed
Description: Gypsum Creek Road has some decent patches of riparian spruce and scenery. A beaver pond on the south side of the road may attract ducks and Spotted Sandpipers. The extremely remote Lede Reservoir itself is unremarkable, but there's good spruce-fir and decent aspen in the area.

Habitat: Spruce-Fir Forest, Mountain Meadow, Pond
Directions: From the Gypsum exit off I-70 (exit 140), take US 6 east into the town of Gypsum. About a half mile from the interstate, turn right onto Valley Road. This road eventually becomes the Gypsum Creek Road (FR 412), which leads to Lede Reservoir.
