Roads and highways lead to recreational sites and can also be recreational facilities in themselves. The Recreational element encompasses resources for outdoor recreational activities that:
- Are directly associated with and dependent upon the natural and cultural elements of a corridor's landscape;
- Provide opportunities for active and passive recreational experiences;
- May include, but are not limited to, downhill skiing, rafting, boating, fishing, hiking, or driving the road itself;
- May be seasonal, but the quality and importance of the recreational activities as seasonal operations must be well recognized.
