Manual for assessing walking tracks in protected areas

Source: CRC Sustainable Tourism
"In this manual three methods (including indicators, protocols and proformas) are presented for surveying and monitoring walking tracks based on a desktop evaluation of methods used overseas and in Australia and field testing of methods by researchers (Hill & Pickering). Two of the methods are census based techniques (condition class assessment and track problem assessment) and the third method is point sampling which is more appropriate for detailed measurement such as those used in temporal monitoring."
