In the Spring of 2006, the Capital District Transportation Committee’s (CDTC’s) Bicycle and Pedestrian Issues Task Force undertook a collaborative effort in conjunction with the Capital District Regional Planning Commission (CDRPC), the Department of Geography and Planning at the University at Albany, and the New York State Department of Health- Healthy Heart Program to conduct a regional trail survey. The Regional Trail Perspectives: A Survey of Capital District Trail Facilities is now complete. The document documents and compares trail user data and adjoining residential property owner data along the Mohawk Hudson Bike Hike Trail, the Uncle Sam Bikeway, and the Zim Smith Trail.
There is a huge amount of data in the document and it was impractical to analyze every comparison possible. Depending on the needs of the community, other comparisons can be made. Please contact CDTC for assistance with additional analyses.
