Waabizheshikana Trail Signage and Wayfinding


Project Status: Construction

Project Overview:

The Waabizheshikana: The Marten Trail, formerly known as the Western Waterfront Trail, has been restored to its original width, greatly improving accessibility while restoring adjacent habitats. The wayfinding and signage plan calls for significant improvement of signage at both trailheads and along the trails proper. The Waabizheshikana Trail will be the first major trail in the Corridor to receive a full signage upgrade.

Project Update:

No update at this time


Majority of signage is to be installed in 2019, with remaining signage and rest stops to be completed after the DNR restoration of Kingsbury Bay in 2020.
