This past summer, Indian Creek Trail, Inc. installed three electronic trail-user counters along the trail corridor to begin learning more about how and when the trail is used. We believe this information will help us and our partners as we work together to care for and expand the trail. We thought those of you who use the trail might be interested in what we're learning as well. The graph above shows weekly trail use on the new trail connection over the last three months. You'll see that during the busiest week in October, the trail saw nearly 2000 users in one week! The effect of last week's winter weather is also apparent, though the trail still saw 500 intrepid visits during that frigid week. If you're curious, we are using infrared trail counters from trafx.net. These devices recognize the temperature difference when a warm body passes in front of the counter. We purchased the counters with funds from our endowment at the Harrison County Community Foundation. That money is income earned by investing your donations along with the Foundation's match. Thank you for using and supporting the trail! We'll keep you posted as we learn more about trail-use trends.
