Author: Huynh, Cindy; Lisso, Laura; Moggy, Jacob; Schieck, Matt
Department: Department of Geography
Abstract: The purpose of this research project was to discover how age, gender, and occupation influence trail usage and maintenance preferences in the east end of Guelph. Survey participants were asked questions about what improvements could be made to ensure comfort while using the trails, frequency of trail use, and type of trail use. The main goals were to find out who was using the trails, what they were using them for, how often they were using them, and how they felt about the maintenance of the trails. The data collected was analyzed to find the recurring trends and themes, which can be used to improve the trail maintenance and increase future usage based on appeal.
Description: The report and data for this study is included. The survey questionnaire is located in the Appendix of the report and should be used when interpreting the data.
