Creating a (route) network from many polylines - detect lines overlap

Hi there,

I have 234 polylines (which represent 234 baboon travel days) and I need to create a "habitual route network" to determine whether the baboons travelled through a "network" of habitual used "routes". To do so, I would like to identify common (segments of) paths (at least 100m in length and no more than 50m apart) that were repeated 1) at least four times and 2) at least 2 times. All the averaging of lines (eg collapse dual lines), is based on only 2 lines and I'm unsure how to do this for 234 lines. I don't know whether there are any solutions in the network analyst, but hoping somebody may be able to point me in the right direction.

Many thanks for reading this and for your advice.
