August 17, 2016 - It’s clear that our growing trail network is adding to the quality of life in Fort Wayne and residents are flocking to our trails in record numbers.
For the second month in a row, trail usage saw historically high usage. Our infrared trail counters recorded 66,858 walkers, joggers and cyclists in the month of July.
That mark is 22,000 more than July 2015 when 44,729 residents used the trails. The July count is just down from this year’s June count, which had an all-time monthly high of 73,226 users.
“It’s thrilling to see more residents using our trails. Nearly every day we hear from new users about how much they love our trails. With the increased usage it’s a good idea to review our trail rules that keep us safe and keep the trails tidy,” said Dawn Ritchie, Director of Greenways and Trails for the City of Fort Wayne.
