Publication Series: Research Paper (RP)

Description: Records of recreational use of Eastern backcountry areas have not been systematically kept by many trail management groups in the past. Decisions on backcountry site designs and facilities should not be made without information on visitor use and behavior. An analysis of sample data from records of overnight shelter use on the Long Trail, Vermont, indicates how such information may be used by trail managers.
