Trail Counts at the Hinton Bike Park


We have some trail user counts for the Hinton Bike Park between May 15 and July 19 => 66 days! Both Flow Master and the Pembina Sprockids Trail (PST) average 18 counts/day, where Flow Master had a max count of 93 on May 27 and PST had a max count of 52 on May 20th.

We are happy to see that Flow Master had 0 counts for the 3 downpour days after the Canada Day Long Weekend! Thank you to all uses who use trails and park responsibly :)


Trail Counts on Hinton Trails


The HMBA has invested in 12 Trail Counters this past year. 5 are located within the Hinton Bike Park and the other 7 are located on our trail system. These units count trail users, whether biking, hiking or running. These units do not take photos - sorry to those who may have made goofy faces at them :)

We shouldn't be surprised that The J is the most used trail as it leads to one of our favorite spots: the EZ Lookout! Happy Creek and Ranger are high favorites as well.

Some Stats on Trail Usage

Bike Hinton

The HMBA invested in some trail counters last Fall and 3 were installed on trails within the Happy Creek Trail System this winter. We were curious to see what trail usage was in winter months. The average air temperature is added to the graph, and we can see that the colder temperatures didn't sway some of our trail users! Data from our trail counters will help estimate trail usage, monitor growth in usage and also to compare usage between seasons. All this data will be valuable in any future grants - we can use these numbers to show how awesome our trails are, year-round!!
