    Description

    Face-to-face interviews were conducted with 232 visitors/groups along Oregon's Rogue-Umpqua Scenic Byway (RUSB) to identify recreation use patterns and assess visitor satisfaction with various attributes of the Byway. Study participants were most likely to be over 50 years old, to be visiting overnight, and to be repeat visitors from Oregon who were there with family members and/or friends. For most, RUSB was their primary destination. Their most common recreational activities on the trip were sightseeing, viewing scenery/nature, hiking/walking, camping, pleasure driving, fishing, and viewing waterfalls. Performance-based satisfaction analysis indicated that the visitors were very satisfied with their overall experience and with the facilities and services offered along the Byway.
