ANALYZING THE USE OF WILDERNESS

This paper describes a large-scale traffic-simulation model developed to evaluate the implications of alternative management strategies for the quality of the recreational services provided by wilderness areas. The model is designed for assessing the impact of various traffic levels on alternative configurations of trails, campsites, etc., in a wilderness area where quality considerations call for a minimum of party-to-party encounters. The model is capable of simulating recreational patterns in real-world systems and has been applied to the Spanish Peaks Primitive Area in Montana. /HRIS/
