On July 28, 2008, the Washington County Planning and Parks Department began an eight month two-phase survey of trail users on the Washington County segment of the Eisenbahn State Trail. Phase 1 of the survey was administered throughout August and September and concluded on October 15, 2008. Phase 2 of the survey was administered from October 16, 2008 to March 31, 2009. This final survey report details responses provided by trail users during various seasons throughout the year.

The survey was conducted to identify ways to improve the Eisenbahn State Trail and to assess public opinion regarding future public trails throughout the County. This information will be utilized by the Planning and Parks Department as part of the update to the Park and Open Space Plan for Washington County.
