The Right to Risk in Wilderness

The full text article is temporarily unavailable.

We apologise for the inconvenience. Please try again later.

This article proposes an expansion of outdoor recreation opportunities to include wilderness areas in which users would bear sole responsibility for their personal welfare. Agencies managing areas designated for full-risk use would be absolved, indeed prohibited, from intervening at any time on behalf of any recreationist in distress.
