Project Description
The Trail User Survey Workbook provides a user-friendly methodology for small trail organizations to collect factual information regarding trail users and the economic impacts of trail development. The workbook includes: methods of data collection, data recordation, reporting and analysis, survey templates, Microsoft excel formatted spreadsheets and sample reports from other completed trail-user surveys.

RTC's Northeast Regional Office worked with the Pennsylvania Department of Conservation and Natural Resources (DCNR) to create this workbook. In addition to providing a valuable resource for trail organizations to track users on their individual trails, the DCNR will use the data generated to track, analyze and share information about trail use throughout the state.
