New Trail Map

By, Tim Gray

Thetford Academy has a new and improved trail map. The map includes a new trail that will be made this summer and it is posted on the trail junctions and trailheads. The physical maps that I have remade are more permanent than the last signs that were temporarily put up. The new signs are going to last longer and be there for many years to come. I decided to redo this project so I could improve little mistakes I made last semester and make an even better permanent trail map

I made these signs so that the community could come walk the beautiful TA trails and not get lost. The new signs were made using software and then printing on high quality paper, laminating and placing the signs in plexiglass on secure posts.  A large scale map is also placed inside a kiosk at the beginning of the state forest so people can see what trail they would like to hike. This map is going to be a helpful resource to our community and anybody that would like to walk these trials.
