In the short time that wilderness visitor management practices have been monitored, some obvious trends have developed. The managing agencies, however, have appeared to provide different solutions to similar problems. In the early years, these problems revolved around concern about overuse of the resource and crowded conditions. Some of those concerns exist today, but they may be overshadowed by feelings that inadequate budgets and workforce are the primary hindrances to wilderness management. The differences in solutions used are largely due to differences in policies guiding the various agencies. Continued monitoring of wilderness visitor management practices is needed.
