Definitions for "Backcountry"
Out of a resort area.
An imprecise term often used to refer to all those portions of wildlands in which usually there are no permanent, improved, or maintained access roads or operational, fixed facilities (such as lumber mills, ski resorts, or settlements with permanent residents). Deteriorating, unused and unoccupied structures may be present. Those roads which are present are only usable by trucks or 4 wheeled-drive vehicles and typically dead-end in the "back country", rather than continue through it. Any presently active uses only have primitive facilities, e.g., cabins, base camps, undeveloped campgrounds. In common usage, primitive and wilderness areas are backcountry types of wildlands which show no obvious evidence of permanent human uses or occupancy. These are any areas where the management objectives stress dispersed, off-road recreation activities, e.g., hiking, trail bike riding, hunting, and fishing. "Backcountry" is a recreation area while "wilderness" is defined primarily as a large natural ecosystem, to be experienced as it is. Recreational opportunities with structural elements can be enhanced or even created in "backcountry", but rarely in "wilderness".
An area where there are no maintained roads or permanent buildings, just primitive roads and trails.
The backcountry refers to the western edges of settlement in colonies from Pennsylvania south to the Carolinas. Colonists first began moving to the backcountry in the eighteenth century, developing a society that was at first somewhat cruder than longer-settled eastern communities.
