Summary: In 2014 Island Trails Network received a grant from the Alaska Recreational Trails Program (RTP) to acquire sign-making equipment and begin implementing a uniform and cost-effective system informational and directional signage throughout the 368-mile trail system of the Kodiak Island Borough. The signage is intended to encourage safety of trail users, to encourage responsible trail use, and to more formally designate existing trails that may have obscure or conflicting names.
