Trail Yield Practices

The United Riders of Cumberland (UROC) are installing sign badges on certain trails throughout the Cumberland trail network that will indicate required or recommended travel direction.. These signs will apply to all trail users and will be added to the sign posts at the bottom of the trails listed below. The installation of directional signage is a response to user feedback, the volume of traffic and variety of users on the Cumberland trail network. The goal is to help maintain safety and enjoyment for all trail users without unduly limiting route options. The list of trails with directional signage may change as trail usage continues to develop, new trails are added, or issues are identified.
