Here is the latest data from the trail use survey and two trail counts that were run in the area. We’ve just started using a trail counter to measure trail use and so have limited data to compare. To get daily trail use estimates from the survey for households that said they used the trail:
- 1 or more times a week we assumed they used the trails 2.5 times per week
- 1 or more times a month we assumed they used the trails 2 times per month
- 1 more more times a year we assumed they used the trails 4 times per year.
Staff put a trail counter on two trails (W1 & W3). For W1 the counter was out from November 14th through the 21st. For W3 the counter was out from November 21st through Dec 2nd. Obviously we had a couple of snow storms and Thanksgiving during this timeframe so the trail count may not reflect normal use.
