While hiking around the state, I'm always looking at how other organizations set up and maintain their trail. Here are some recently placed sign boards for the New England National Scenic Trail in Middletown. The sign boards are set well in off the road near the first trail junction you come to. There's a laminated trail map and a QR code below it you can scan if you have a smart phone to get a map on your phone. We do have a few laminated maps like this on the trails in the Nells Rock area where people tend to get lost, but they are just stapled onto trees. Having a sign board like this to attach the maps to would look pretty sharp.
