The amount of innertube floating on a mountain stream, use patterns, and the degree of ecological and social impacts resulting from this recreational activity were investigated. Both observational and survey research techniques were employed. Results indicate that although use appears fairly high, users perceive no crowding and feel no need to control numbers of floaters. However, major ecological impacts were present in the form of stream bank erosion and alteration of stream morphology. Management implications concerning the use observed and the impacts occuring are discussed.
