    Trail signage

    Hi,

    Would love to see the Trail Signage systems different places are using...

    I am particularly interested in the "trail head" signs, the stuff that includes risk management speak...

    Also if any one can take a photo of there pump track signs...

    I am putting together a whole heap of Signage, and want it to look good, not just the same old, same old.... (and be usefull!!!)

    Would like to also like to hear where you had your signage made (if not homemade).

    Not mine but I liked it.

    Regarding the legal stuff, another thing would be to check out the wording on signs at a ski slope in your state. It's a pretty good bet that any liability sign at a ski slope has been past a legal department.

    Edit: one thing about the sign below, I've known two people who are color blind, neither could see red, so red letters may be a poor choice.

    I like the Fossil Industries Signs a lot, they also sell different types of posts to mount them on. They are guaranteed for 10 years I believe.

    Risk Management AK style

    This is a great sign with a different approach toward risk management. From the Powerline Trail near Anchorage AK.
