The College of Charleston’s four-mile nature trail winds through 800-acres of a former plantation on the banks of the Stono River in Charleston County, South Carolina. Interpretive way stations punctuate the trail with stories of the site’s history, culture, and ecology. The sign system, which also includes wayfinding, uses trail markers emblazoned with symbols representing distinct landscapes to supply visitors with visual cues to their whereabouts. Signs complement their natural surroundings with thin and arcing elements inspired by swaying grasses and migratory birds and wildlife.
