Signs and symbols are a specific part of graphic arts, called iconography. Merriam-Webster defines iconography as:
Trails, just like any other infrastructure conveying human beings, need signage of some kind to help direct users and get them to be aware of various realities on the trail. But bad signage can be as bad (or worse sometimes) then no signage.
So how can a trail system do trail signage right? What can help direct users without overloading them?
Much thanks to Matthew B. of the San Francisco Urban Riders for helping to fill out some great riding locations in and around San Francisco, CA to add to the Trails Inventory.
Much thanks to Matthew for the additional information. If you have a trail system or mountain biking park you think should be included, let us know about it and we will add it.
Because every update needs an accompanying song, I think we only have one choice, Jude Garland singing "San Francisco". Yeah, a bit of stereotype there, but as stereotypes go, a pretty harmless one.
Sometimes, life gives you lemons. Sometimes, it backs a truck up to your front door and dumps lemons till your house bursts.
