The registers placed on Mt. Arrowsmith are looked after by the Alpine Club of Canada. When these books become full they are taken to the club's archives. They are open to the public for viewing or photo-copying.
The marked increase in this mountain's popularity can be roughly assessed by the numbers of signatures increasing each year.
|1993||162 (July 19 - Dec 27)|
|1994||235 (Feb - Oct 29)|
|2001||600 (up to Sept)|
|2002||242 (from Sept 14)|
|2003||60 (Jan 1 to Feb 27)|
|2004||530 (May 11 2003 book dug up)|
|(N.B. 2003 & 2004 had fire closures in the months of August.)|
Keeping in mind that these figures represent only the people who signed the register and does not take into account those numbers hiking on other areas on the massif, or the people that reached the summit yet did not sign, nor that the register can be inaccessible for up to four months of the year due to snowpack and that the mountain has been closed to the public, due to fire hazard, much of the past few summers.
One September Sunday, 25 vehicles were counted at various trail heads. Estimating 2-4 people per vehicle, there were probably around 75 hikers on the massif that single day.
While not an accurate assessment, still it does show the increasing popularity of this massif.
