DescriptionEducating, interpreting for, and communicating with wilderness visitors is necessary to promote appropriate low-impact wilderness recreation. The Angeles National Forest is located northeast of Los Angeles and is surrounded by a large and ethnically diverse population that provided a potentially ethnically diverse sample ofwilderness visitors for the purpose of this study. This study assessed the types of visitors coming to the Cucamonga, San Gabriel, and Sheep Mountain Wildernesses on the Angeles National Forest and provided a basis for understanding their behavior, attitudes, and needs regarding their wilderness experience.
