We printed these full color trail map signs for the Lakes Region Conservation Trust, which opened a new hiking trail recently.
The trail head signs include a large color trail map of the area, showing the topo map and the trails, as well as a description of the history of the property and the LRCT logo. All in all, it’s a very handsome group of large format printing.
My word to the wise is to take a photo of the trail map sign before you head out! A mile in, you’ll wonder which fork in the trail to take, and you can reference your photo. I’ve made it a habit of doing this every time I see a trail map at the trail head, and it serves me well.
I also encourage the conservation groups to install “you are here” trail map signs at important junctions. It can get confusing as to which junction you are at, and these help a lot.
