Annual Trail Count
The City of Vancouver and Clark County Public Works participate in the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Program each September to track how many people are using Vancouver trails. The data collected during the trail count helps inform future plans and budgets.
Volunteers can register to help with the annual trail count in August and September. The counts take place in mid-September. Volunteer shifts are FULL for 2023.
Volunteers attend a one-hour orientation, where they are assigned specific trail sites and times. They are only expected to count during their assigned time.

- Provide own transportation to the assigned trail count location
