Trail Counter Program

The Des Moines Area MPO operates a Trail Counter Program to collect usage data on the paved trail network in Central Iowa, which aids the region in planning for the maintenance and growth of the network.

The MPO owns several trail counters for accruing data on the use of trails throughout Central Iowa. These trail counters are made available to MPO member governments.
