Signage for the Tirol mountain path concept - walking
The common signage system based on the mountain path concept guides walkers safely where they want to go, without any wrong turns.
Signposts are the main form of signage for walking and mountain paths. And the number of signs is kept to a minimum to prevent a “forest” of signs in the natural environment. Fundamentally, signposts are placed at every major junction, turn, or fork in the road. These signposts are yellow and contain the destination, journey time and route number. In addition, there is a red dot on medium difficulty routes, and a black dot on difficult mountain routes.
Location boards contain the name and height of the location where the board is located.
Between the individual signposts, you will also find ground markings which are generally painted on stones. The paths are marked on the ground or at fixed pints on the edge of the path (rock face. wooden peg etc.) to prevent users from straying from the path in poor visibility or when bad weather comes in (light covering of fresh snow). The first ground markings are located within sight of the signpost. Subsequent ground markings are then located in such a way that they are clearly visible in both directions, and designed uniformly over the whole course of the route.
