Trailhead Signage

Trailhead-Signage-Tina-SchweigerThe Trail now features informative – and beautiful – signage at four major trailhead locations: North MoPac, South MoPac, Auditorium Shores and the Parks and Recreation Department office.

The culmination of more than four years of services and creative energy by Tina Schweiger of Blueshoe Spoonbend, the new signage includes the Trail’s new mile markers as part of Tina’s multi-year commitment.  This project would not have been possible without Tina’s tremendous design skills as well as her dedication from the concept phase through design and fabrication.

The signs’ angled, graphic representation of the Lady Bird Lake clearly displays both the loop distances between bridges (to the mile hundredth), as well as the locations of trailside attractions. The map was designed to be informational, rather than representational, and the use of only 90º and 45º angles was inspired by the famous London Underground Subway map.

Fossil Graphics fabricated the sign panel using an acrylic polymer fused with the image. The finished product is impervious to moisture and extremely resistant to UV, graffiti and scratching.  The Alice Kleberg Reynolds Meyer Foundation generously provided funding for the construction of the signs, completed by Capital Architectural Signs.
