Most articles written on guided walks deal with the sub ject matter to be discussed at various stops along the trail. Few articles deal with the psychological needs of the forest guide. It is hoped that this contribution may help in this area. It has become common for a forester to be asked to guide a group of visitors through his forest. If such a request comes your way the first thing to do is to decide on the best route for you. Successful guided walks are very much a matter of confidence. To sustain this confidence the route you choose should favour discussion on subjects or aspects of forestry that interest you.
