Back 40 Trails data survey
A trail impact and usage study was conducted by a University of Arkansas doctoral student within the Department of Health and Human Performance over a two-week period during spring 2018. Data was obtained by a digital survey circulated via City of Bella Vista social media sites. The survey determined the characteristics of trail users, including demographic information and usage patterns; sections of trail used most frequently and primary reasons for trail usage; and spending patterns of trails users, including amount spent of gear, meals, and lodging and overnight stays.
