Description: Behavior of visitors on the Rainbow Trail, a Forest Service Interpretive Area in the Lake Tahoe Basin, California, was surveyed by observation and by interview. Some significant differences between trail visitors and other kinds of outdoor recreation enthusiasts were discovered. Enjoyment was high, and learning, while moderate, exceeded expectations. The Stream Profile Chamber proved to be more significant as an attraction than as an educational tool.

Keywords: outdoor recreation, interpretive trails, visitor behavior, interview surveys, Rainbow Trail, Lake Tahoe Basin, systematic observation surveys
