    Description

    A study to estimate dispersed recreational use on three Michigan public forests was conducted April-December 1992. Use was estimated to be 9.3 hours per acre over the period. Travelers to the forests accounted for 45% of the use and inholders within the forests who did not drive a car or truck onto the public lands accounted for 55%. Hunting, offroad vehicle use and hiking/walking were the most frequently cited principle dispersed activities.
