This is a report on infrared (IR) counter data collected by the Connecticut Trail Census. It documents trail use during June 2020 at 13 sites along some of the most popular multi-use trails in Connecticut, and compares use with the same period in 2019, as one indication of the unprecedented changes in trail use occurring simultaneously with the outbreak of COVID-19.

Have You Seen This Box?
The grey electrical junction box houses a Trafx infrared (IR) pedestrian counter. The counter can sense the temperature differential between warm bodies and the ambient air temperature. Every time a trail user passes the counter, the counter records it, enabling project staff to gauge trail use.
