Description: Compatibility indexes show how Ohio trail users feel about meeting each other on the trail. All four of the major types of trail users-hikers, horseback riders, bicycle riders, and motorcycle riders-enjoy meeting their own kind. But they also feel antagonism toward the faster, more mechanized trail users; e.g., everyone likes hikers, but few like motorcycle riders. Separating the average indexes into their components gives important information for trail planners, builders, and managers attempting to optimize the enjoyment of trails.
Keywords: Recreation, hiking, horseback riding, bicycle riding, motorcycle riding
