Los Alamos residents love their trail network, but many of them are reluctant to use it.
“The lack of signs has kept me from trying out different trails because I am unable to know if I am on the right trail or have wandered off the path,” commented a typical respondent to last year’s Los Alamos County Open Forum on the trail network.
The county’s Recreation, Parks and Open Space Division is off and running on the creation of a new trail signage system. The first stop is soliciting trail users’ opinions on what the signs should look like and where they should be placed.
“For years the number one complaint about the trail network has been the lack of adequate signage and it’s time to fix that problem, but only with plenty of input from trail users,” County Open Space Specialist Craig Martin said.
Martin explained that the goal is to provide uniform marking of the trail network that meets a balance between finding needs of trail users and the aesthetics of County-owned open space. To that end, Martin has developed a “Trail Network Signage Plan Working Draft.” The plan is meant to provide general guidelines for trail signage and offer alternatives for the style, frequency, and design of signage as a starting point for discussions within the trail-user community.
