Describing Trails: Distance or Time?
Morris, Beverly R.; Bixler, Robert D.
Journal of Interpretation Research, v3 n1 p57-59 Win 1998
To determine whether trails on visitor maps should indicate distance only or include "time to complete," Cleveland Metroparks interviewed 287 adult visitors to a large regional zoo. The mean perceived "average time to walk a mile" was 17 minutes, but responses ranged from 1.5 to 60 minutes. Half of respondents underestimated the time needed. (SV)
