Signage on mountain bike trails is very important for the bikers’ safety and trail maintenance. It informs bikers about the course of the trail, potential danger spots and other important information such as difficulty level or changes in direction. Good signage can help the bikers to stay on the right path and avoid unwanted trail abandonment. Another great safety factor is brought by local mountain rescue signs along the entire trail. The phone number and the trail section number are there too. With the help of this marking, the exact location of the accident can be communicated to the rescue teams without any problems.
It is also important that the signs are regularly maintained to ensure that they are still legible and understandable.
All in all, good signage is an important part of mountain bike trail planning and management that can help making trails safer and more enjoyable to ride.
