Hey Peeps,

So @rsharp and I have been working on a Trailmetrics series: basically, unnecessary-but-fun quantification of the two most important questions facing any hiker: 1) Degree of Difficulty and 2) Payoff.

The former is relatively easy to quantify, but for the latter we have two potential approaches. We could use self-reported happiness by hikers (TripAdvisor, Backpacking sites, etc). Basically, average ratings. The other obvious direction would be to yuck it up and use criteria we set with maximum entertainment value in mind. Basically, how hard should we seriously try to quantify quality? @pokemama @otrera @courtney @wwsubtitles
