warning Please read this first! The visualizations presented here are estimations only and are:
  1. Not real-time
    • They're projections based on 15 years of self-reported data and do not necessarily represent trail activity for the current year
  2. Relative in intensity
    • The heat signatures show the density of hikers relative to other locations on the trail for that day only
    • In other words, they represent percentages rather than absolute numbers
  3. Not to scale
    • The heat signatures appear wider than the actual trail to aid in visibility; they don't represent the literal physical area occupied by hikers
