In the summer of 2013, the Elkhart County Convention and Visitors Bureau, Friends of the Pumpkinvine Nature Trail, Goshen Parks and Recreation Department, Maple City Bicycle Advisory Committee, and the Goshen Engineering Department hired Rails-to-Trails Conservancy (RTC) to conduct a comprehensive trail use count on several multi-use trails in the County. The level of service counts were conducted on four trails:
1. Pumpkinvine Nature Trail between Goshen and Shipshewana
2. Maple City Greenway / Mapleheart Trail between Goshen and Oxbow park
3. Millrace Canal Trail
4. Winona Railway trail
In addition, local volunteers helped to collect surveys from trail users, gathering valuable information about who is using the trails and for what purposes.
