Trailhead Signage Project – Frequently Asked Questions

What is the Trailhead Signage Project?

The project’s primary goal is to install trailhead signs at the start and end of each trail in the Cumberland trail network, with each sign indicating the trail name and difficulty rating. These signs will help UROC fulfill its responsibilities as land managers by improving trail user safety and experience, as well as providing a communication tool for emergency situations.
