Central Otago Clutha Trails director Barrie Wills said at least 100 completed surveys were needed for the trail to be considered for funding by the Ministry of Business, Innovation and Employment.
So far the group had only about 20 to 30.
Questions in the survey included how people heard about the trail, whether they lived in the area and their reasons for using the trail.
The survey period covered the year to the end of February, so it was not too late for people to complete it, which they could do online in about 10 minutes, Mr Wills said.
‘‘We need to get people to take the time to fill that survey in.’’
The survey was not difficult to complete, Mr Wills said.
Funding provided would go towards maintenance, which could include putting more gravel on the track, safety upgrades, or paying a contractor to remove any trees that fell down.
‘‘Anything to do with the actual construction of the trail itself, that money can go towards.’’
Overall, feedback from people who had shared their experience of the trail was ‘‘brilliant’’.
‘‘It’s very highly regarded, so from that point of view it’s brilliant [but] we need to keep those numbers up.’’
People were welcome to complete the survey each time they used the trail.
