In 2015, the Trail Town Program® surveyed trail users to determine habits and trends of visitors to a series of trails that make up the Main Line Canal and Trans-Allegheny Trails systems in Pennsylvania. 199 surveys were collected over a span of four months. The respondents represented over 55 unique zip codes. The sample survey was conducted to provide new and updated information related to trail users visiting these trails. This information includes general demographics, trail usage, interest of services, and spending related to lodging and other amenities.
With the small amount of surveys collected, this survey should be conducted again over an increased time span so that additional data can be collected. Highlights from the survey are included in this report.
