An array of sign types – including entrance identifiers, vehicular guides, trail head kiosks and trail guides – work together to keep trail users informed and oriented during their visit.


Concise maps – adapted to trail head kiosks and small guides – help visitors easily orient themselves to the wider park and plan their visit.
