Graphical Representation of Hiker Start Dates

Postby postholer » Wed Mar 16, 2011 4:48 pm

Using the extensive hiker register at, you now have a graph that shows hiker start dates within a 3 month window:

This graph updates hourly or as hikers add/remove themselves. It is also available for any postholer trail with 10 or more hikers for any given year.

So be sure to sign the register. If you want to hike with a group, or not, this gives a good indication of what to expect and when.

I am interested in a little disaggregation with a demographic breakdown by age, maybe three age groups. My specific interest, if the data is available somewhere, pertains to older hikers, like 66. The average age is stated as 20-29. There will likely be a large degree of heterogeneity even within a more closely defined group but I might be able to zero in on available journals for more detail. It might be interesting to know how many seniors hit the trail.
