Gallatin National Forest Traffic Data Collection and Visitor Surveys

Started: June, 2012 Ended: March, 2013 Project ID #4W4117 Status: Completed


The objective of this project was to conduct transportation-related visitor surveys at recreation areas in the Gallatin National Forest.


WTI worked on behalf of DJ&A Engineering to conduct transportation-related visitor research at recreation areas in the Gallatin National Forest in Montana. WTI developed and administered surveys to collect data such as typical vehicle occupancy, average length of stay, traveling with pet, and visitors attitudes toward transit (how likely to use transit, willingness to pay, etc.). The surveys were administered at the following trailheads: the "M" and Drinking Horse Mountain trailheads, four Hyalite trailheads, and the Sourdough trailhead. WTI entered the data into a database and provided a data report to DJ&A.
