Better Wayfinding at Waterfall Glen
From The Conservationist
The Forest Preserve District of DuPage County installed 19 new wayfinding posts and 19 mileage markers along 9.5 miles of trails at Waterfall Glen Forest Preserve
in Darien last October.
The project was the result of a survey the District completed earlier in the year. More than 1,000 hikers, joggers, bikers, bird-watchers and other outdoor enthusiasts completed an online survey or participated in trailside surveys and open houses. As promised, the District analyzed the comments it received and sued them to develop the signs, which make it easier to navigate the preserve. The four-sided posts have trail names, directional arrows, and distances to parking lots, forest preserve features and connecting trails.
Waterfall Glen is the first to receive the updated signs, and installation should begin this year at the next forest preserve location, Fullersburg Woods
