In this study we analyse the effects of the cycle and hiking trails on the abundance, spatial activity and behaviour of roe deer and wild boar. We found low effect of disturbance on the presence and density of roe deer and wild boar population. The density of ungulates was more affected by the development of shrub layer than by human activities. In areas with low intensity of disturbance, density of roe deer beds was lower than in heavily disturbed areas. The identical course of activity in the areas indicates that the roe deer is under significant pressure from the disturbance both in the disturbed and undisturbed area. As expected, the human impact on the wild boar was greatest in one of the heavily disturbed area, but at the same time this species used the most heavily disturbed area the most. In both types of areas, the wild boar maintained strictly nocturnal activity, which demonstrates the significant effect of human interference in both disturbed and undisturbed areas.
