Trail, river, and similar recreation opportunities occur over broad expanses of land or water in natural settings and accommodate recreational activities that involve relatively low-density use and limited infrastructure. These activities include hiking, caving, rock climbing, mountaineering, over-snow vehicle use, cross-country skiing, horseback riding, bicycling, off-highway vehicle use, driving for pleasure, boating, hunting, and fishing.
