Currently, trail counters are installed at 11 of our trailheads and provide daily updates on visits to these locations. Development for this application was slated for later in 2020 but given the recent impacts of COVID, we have decided to release this application in a phased approach to provide earlier access to the data. This initial release of Version 1.0 provides some quick summary statistics, including average daily visits by location for the last 4 weeks, hourly visits for the last 7 days, and daily totals for all days since February 1, 2020. Forthcoming features will include a page with more detailed site-specific analytics as well as options to compare visitation to previous/historic measurements.
If this is your first time using the Visitation Data Explorer, please click the "Guide" icon (blue ? mark) at the upper right of the main screen for some key background information as well as pointers on navigating the data explorer. The methods used to collect trail count data for our permanent fleet is very similar to the methodology used for our 2016-2017 Visitation Estimate. You can view the 2016-2017 Report as well as a dynamic data explorer for that report.
