Quarry Trail System Signage Project

A Project of Fredericksburg Trails Alliance
Fredericksburg, VA

$ 1250.00 raised of $ 5500.00

The Quarry Trail System, consists of numerous intersecting trails along the Rappahannock River and parallel ridgeline. It is a very popular trail system but the consistent complaint is that there is no signage and it is easy to get lost. This project will provide signage for a safer experience.

The funds will provide the 6x6 posts, the aluminum plates and the vinyl printed signs and arrows that will provide guidance to all riders, hikers and runners in the Quarry Trail System. The system has become more popular with visiting riders but they consistently describe the number one detractor of the trails is the lack of signage. At present, there is zero signage for a network consisting of more than 14 intersecting trails covering about 17 miles of single track. Several intersections have three or more trails that connect at that point so it can be very confusing for unfamiliar riders and runners. The signage will provide a much safer and greatly enhanced experience for all users of the trails.
