As part of the National Bicycle and Pedestrian Documentation Project (and in partnership with Metro), the Portland Bureau of Transportation conducts an annual census of people walking, people biking, and other users (such as people using skateboards and wheelchairs) on trails across the city. There are currently 66 sites on trails including Springwater Corridor, Willamette Greenway, I-205 path, and more. Volunteers always needed!
