Video: Making Trail Signs

January 24, 2013

Each year, the Appalachian Mountain Club professional trail crew creates dozens of new and replacement trail signs to mark trailheads, junctions, and other special features throughout the White Mountains and beyond. This video shows how they do it—and why signs are an important part of AMC’s stewardship of 1,700 miles of trails in the Northeast. Inspired? Learn more about trail sign design, wood choices, routing, painting, and staining in AMC’s Complete Guide to Trail Building and Maintenance. Watch all AMC videos on YouTube.
