    So is this really a thing, or has someone lost a portable trail counter?

    Seen on the Lucky Run Trail along Walter Reed, just east of Wakefield St....

    Does ARL use these for spot checks of trail usage?

    So no one really knows anything about this trailside obelisk? Is this the unicorn of trail accessories, or are these things really used for short term data collection and moved periodically?

    Hey Justin-- I checked in with the folks who manage all of the trail and street counters for peds and bikes in Arlington, and this guy is on duty! They're looking to gather more information about the intersection with the trail and the condo entrance at Wakefield. There are 37 permanent counters and 6 portable ones (such as this one). They fondly refer to the portable ones you have here as the "Eco-Bucket", since most of the products from the counter company are called "Eco-something". BikeArlington has a few resources online about the program.

    Thanks for the info & education. We can now add "Edo-Bucket" to our list of helpful tools....
