Trail Planning and Design

BergerABAM designs trails for use by the entire community and all levels of ability. Each design moves through an analysis that establishes how users will interact with the trail and its amenities. Will the trail move along the waterfront edge of a busy city, or will it cross a breezy hilltop? Will it be used by speeding bicyclists, families out for a Sunday ramble, or commuters who want the most direct route? We work with the community to select trail elements that preserve the character of the natural setting, orient users, and are safe. BergerABAM’s in-house planning and graphic design experts collaborate by researching design precedents, materials, and historical information, and designing graphics and identity. The resulting well-thought-out signage and wayfinding meet local, state, and federal standards and add beauty and interest to the trail.
