For much needed signs like "wrong way", could spray paint on a tree be used? A template could be used that is smaller and nice looking. I know it is quite invasive, but is common in other areas.

It won't last for very long. Even the NCT-esque blazes which involve scraping bark then painting a blaze (no text) only holds up for a few years before needing to be repainted. Something textual won't last very long. Also, it's best to have a consistently communicated message with the same sort of sign conveying all of the route and direction markings.

Toll Booth? Bob can man it... i'm not passing him without paying up! Though he's easily distracted with shiny bike bits!


Not to mention squirrels. ;)

Likely need one-way tire shredders before it's taken seriously. :evil:

BTW Painting trees at Stony is illegal.
Park policy allows temporary markings on Dirt and Grass only. No rocks, stumps, roots, trees, benches, pavement, etc can be marked.

The park plans to re-do all the signage at Stony this fall.
