Bulletin 12: Reasons for using trails

2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor (Adult focus),

October 31, 2016

The types of trails in Canada are diverse and can include land-based routes or water-based routes. In a previous bulletin, the 2014-2015 Physical Activity Monitor asked Canadians (18 years and older) about their use of trails, the frequency of use, and in what season the trail is typically used (Bulletin #10). In addition, the survey also further asked about the primary reason for using the trail. The reasons identified by trail users are summarized in this research bulletin.
