– May marked the real start of the trail count project with a trail wide synchronized count on May 19th. More Synchronized counts are planned for,
Tuesday July 10 from 10:00am – 12:00 pm
Sunday August 12 from 2:00 pm – 4:00 pm
Saturday September 22 from 12:00 pm – 2:00 pm
Synchronized Trail Counts occur when a group of volunteers count trail users at many different locations along the Great Allegheny Passage on the same day for the same two hour period. This gives us a snapshot of trail use.
– Manual counts were held in Ohiopyle, Deal and Rockwood. The data from these counts is being compiled and will be analyzed at the end of the year. A new trail counter has also been installed in Garrett. If you would be interested in helping with one of the trail counts this summer please contact the Trail Town Program.
– Manual counts are conducted by the Trail Town Outreach Corps.
