Vinehealth Australia’s ‘Please Stay On The Track’ biosecurity sign is a popular option for walking and cycling trails located near vineyards.
An image of a horse was recently added to this sign, in response to a request from Horse SA for biosecurity signs to place along the 269km scenic Kidman Trail, a multi-use horse riding, cycling and walking trail between Willunga and Kapunda.
“There are quite a few trails that go through wine regions, including this one, so it’s important to get the message out that riders should stick to the track provided,” said Horse SA Executive Officer Julie Fiedler.
“To educate riders, we find information on signs and maps is the most effective, along with digital tools. Riders can unknowingly enter unfenced private properties if they wander off tracks, damage native vegetation and spread weed seeds. We really like the ‘Stay on the track’ sign as it’s a strong, all-encompassing message for general traffic control along our trails.”
Ideally, the ‘Please Stay On The Track’ signs will be at the beginning and end of tracks, and more signs may be needed along the track if the trail is longer than 1km.
