Walory krajobrazu leśnego Magurskiego Parku Narodowego a wykorzystanie potencjału rekreacyjnego

Abstract

An analysis of data from the Central Statistical Office suggests that the low number of people visiting the Magurski National Park (40,000–50,000 a year) has remained the same for several years now. This paper is an attempt at answering a question whether a small number of tourists in the Magurski National Park, where afforestation rate is 95%, is a consequence of rather average landscape assets of the local forests. The research has covered 605 tree stands of a total area of 8,792 ha, which is 47% of the park’s forest surface area. The performed valorisation of the forest landscape from the perspective of tourism and recreation allows to claim that the low utilisation of the recreational potential of the Magurski National Park (8% – determined in previous studies) is not a result of modest landscape values of forests. The majority of tree stands boasts high landscape values (74%). In the author’s opinion, the reason for the small interest in this area lies in the underdeveloped tourist infrastructure, especially the low density of trails (4.8 m/ha).

Keywords: forest landscape valorisation, forest tourism, recreation, national park
