Trail locator sign

A newly-installed safety locator sign on a CAMBA mountain bike trail.

In an effort to improve trail users’ ability to find their way on the many non-motorized recreational trails in Bayfield and Sawyer counties and, more importantly, to identify their location in the event of an emergency, county emergency management, land records and sheriff’s offices have been meeting regularly with local trail organizations since last fall.

Their efforts to date have resulted in the adoption of a new system of emergency location markers that can be used in remote areas to better pinpoint a user’s location and aid in search and rescue.
