Trail Use Estimates

GDA is partnering with TRCA to install trail counters on the East Duffins Headwaters properties. The counters will help us get an idea of the number of trail users, and of year-over-year increases in trail users. The information will help us in applying for grants, and in working towards a better funding model to help care for the trails. Starting in 2021 we will install trail counters at various points where people access the trails. We are using trail counters made by TRAFx. No personal information is collected, no photos are taken, the counters simply count when people are walking by using infrared sensors.
