    Description

    Wilderness experiences are thought to be comprised of or defined by three dimensions, including social, resource, and management conditions. Decisions about how to manage wilderness recreation in Denali National Park involve potential tradeoffs among the conditions of resource, social, and managerial attributes of the wilderness experience. This study expands the normative approach to wilderness research by developing a decision-making model that considers social, resource, and managerial attributes of the wilderness experience within a holistic context. Specifically, stated choice analysis is used to evaluate the choices overnight wilderness visitors in Denali National Park make when faced with hypothetical tradeoffs among the conditions of social, resource, and management attributes of the wilderness portion of the park.
