Direction & Wayfinding Signs

Signs with directions, arrows, distances, and information to help trail users find their way.

Some trails are so highly developed and continuous there is no chance of a visitor losing the path. Rail trails and paved bikeways would seem to be obvious examples. But even wide, well-used trails are disrupted by roads, intersections, missing bridges, and other obstacles. Signs showing the trail user where to go to pick up the route again are essential parts of trail development. Direction signs also help hikers and riders find destinations along the trail. Finally, where routes diverge signs will enable users to follow the correct path, or to discover new ones. The following examples are from a wide variety of trails across the United States.
