FLMSP’s counting program recorded 1.27 million trail visits in 2016, a 40% increase over last year’s count of 0.9 million. The most popular sections of the trail remain Loveland, Milford, and Fosters.
Our pioneering program uses electronic counters and sophisticated interpretation of data based on user surveys. The main purpose of this program is to demonstrate the importance and popularity of the trail to attract adequate funding, development, and oversight. The detailed data collected at 22 locations also provides customized usage reports to towns and communities along the trail.
