Short Description of Activity

We had 2 members participate to complete 2 Solitude Monitoring Surveys on 2 or our five assigned trails. The surveys include gathering data on how many encounters there are, how many people in each encounter as well as how many campsites are seen and their proximity one to another.


We have met our minimum number of Solitude Monitoring data collections for weekend hikes on our designated trails. We have more than our minimum Solitude Monitoring data collections for one trail and have met the minimum for 2 more trails. We have sign ups for September to complete our commitment.
