    Description

    Wilderness visitor monitoring techniques can provide important baseline information on recreational use and assist managers in making recreation use management decisions. A demonstration project was conducted in the Great Gulf Wilderness using active infra-red beam type trail counters and brief on-site interviews to obtain information about visitor travel patterns, wilderness destinations, and estimate total recreational use by trail segments. The spatial and temporal distribution of use was analyzed to understand the concentration of use that occurred in the Great Gulf Wilderness.
