Due to the fires, we were forced to cancel the Trail Intercept Study last year. Please help us complete the trailhead survey by volunteering for the dates in July.
Please sign up to help Trails 2000 conduct a Trail Impact Study during the 2019 trail season to gain insight into annual trail use in Durango. Volunteers are needed to administer the survey this July; sign up is now available below.
The simple, three-question survey aims to collect demographic information about trail users, such as gender, age, and hometown, as well as trail use data including trail location, activity, frequency, and date of use. The data collected will provide insight into the number of people who use the trails annually, as well as help demonstrate the economic benefits of hiking, mountain biking, trail running, walking and other trail recreation activities in Durango.
Volunteers will be stationed at various in-town and high country trailheads where they will interact with users who pass by, requesting they complete the short survey. Volunteers must be 18 or older and have transportation available to them. Volunteers should meet at the trailhead during their designated shift time and dress accordingly to be outside for the duration of their shift, i.e. wear proper sun protection. Sun hats and camp chairs are available from Trails 2000 if needed, and volunteers will receive snacks, beverages and swag, along with a great sense of support for trails.
