Trail signs showing allowed and prohibited activities

How do you easily convey to trail visitors what activities are allowed and, more importantly, NOT allowed" The most common graphic devices are variations on the international symbols. Take standard pedestrian silhouette, add a walking stick, and you've got a hiker. Various manufacturers can provide the range of symbols, posts, and signage systems. The flexible fiberglass flat posts are typically used with stick-on user symbols on federal lands, but the vandal- and vehicle-resistant posts are also appropriate for some urban situations. Other signs provide the allowed or prohibited trail uses with some explanation or user etiquette in both urban and back-cpuntry settings.
