This monitoring project aims to:
- detect impacts that may occur to key values as a result of horse riding on the pilot wilderness trails within the two-year trial period
- define thresholds for implementing management interventions to protect key values from irreversible damage and inform park managers of any threshold triggers
- detect whether interventions are successful in ensuring key values are protected from irreversible damage.
