Re: E-M:/ info(?) on hiker satisfaction with timber management

I am not sure about formal studies regarding this issue but if you want to
check out the real thing, go to the North Country National Scenic Trail just
east of the Victoria Reservior in the Ottawa National Forest (just northeast
of Ewen, MI).  There you can find where clearcuts and logging roads
crisscross the trial itself.

A neat little experiment one could do would be simply to walk the section of
the trail in that area and see write down the first thought that comes to
mind as you move in and out of clearcuts and step across ruts from the skid
trails leading from roads to clearcuts and just happen to cross the trail.
