Catt County Trails
The Cattaraugus Countywide Trail System consists of a large trail network that includes Allegany State Park, New York’s largest state park. Regional trails, such as the Finger Lakes Trail and North Country Trail, connect Cattaraugus County to New York State and the Great Lakes Trail Systems.
Feedback from a county-wide survey determined that there was a need for more trail information, easy-to-find trailheads and better signage. In order to make the trails more accessible to all users, Barton & Loguidice and CG teamed to develop a comprehensive and easy-to-use information system.
The goal was to create a seamless experience across all media, from web to signage. CG developed recommendations for renaming trailheads for their access roads, and displaying up-to-date information consistently on all signage. A website, developed by B&L, will allow users to search trails close to their location, organize hiking itineraries, and connect with destinations, businesses, and points of interest.
