Motivation for this Work

Understanding how people use trails is key to building a healthy community in Delaware. However, we don’t have empirical data from trail users of the Jack and Markell Trail. In this project, we aimed to understand how people use the JAM trail by conducting intercept surveys. We asked 300+ trail users at the Jack A. Markell Trail across the four locations about their perception and engagement at the park.
