Volunteers Needed for Spring Trail Counts

“If you build it will they come?” We can answer, “If you build biking and walking trails, they WILL come,” with a resounding “YES” because of volunteers like you who count people walking and biking on the Appomattox River Trail.


REGISTER HERE for Spring 2021 Trail Counts.


WHAT ARE TRAIL COUNTS? Trail Counts are important biannual counts conducted along the Appomattox River Trail.  Supported by volunteers like you, this effort gathers critical data about biking and walking activity to improve planning and design of future trails.

HOW IT WORKS. Volunteers choose a day and location from the list of sites and then count the number of people walking and biking along their trail section for a 2-hour period. 

DATES: May 13TH and 15TH

TIMES: 10:00am – 12 noon or 4:00pm – 6:00pm
