Nearly 400 new trail signs will be installed across the region in early 2016 thanks in part to a $262,000 grant to Metro from the Oregon Department of Transportation.
Visitors will see new signs along the Rock Creek Trail in Hillsboro, the Fanno Creek Trail in Tigard, the Tualatin River Greenway in Tualatin, and the Trolley Trail in Milwaukie, Oak Grove and Gladstone.
The signs will make it easier for visitors to navigate the trails by providing a consistent look and feel across the trail system, said Robert Spurlock, senior regional trail planner at Metro.
Mile markers every quarter mile will boost safety by making it easier for trail users to know their precise locations.
The new signs will be co-branded with Metro, The Intertwine Alliance and local parks providers, such as the North Clackamas Parks & Recreation District and the cities of Hillsboro, Tigard, Tualatin, Durham, Milwaukie and Gladstone.
