Making trails count

Trail useage for the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, the Maple City Greenway and the MapleHeart Trail was surveyed last summer. The survey consisted of two parts: 1) eight Bicyclist riding on the new trailinfrared counters recorded the number of trail users and 2) volunteers stopped trail users and asked them to fill out a questionnaire. The infrared data will be annualized based on established statistical procedures. Information from the questionnaires is being processed by students at Goshen College. A report on the results will be published in 2014.
