Description: The future of wilderness is open for discussion and debate. In this paper we invite readers to consider four wilderness scenarios, any one of which, or combination of which, seems possible based on current demographic, social, and cultural trends. The purpose of the paper is not so much to try to predict the future as it is to prod readers into pondering the futureā€”a future where wilderness may or may not be valued in the same fashion it is today.

Keywords: management frameworks, recreation management, research methods, solitude, technology, visitor density, wilderness experience
