The staff at the Mount Holyoke Range State Park has implemented a new
system for locating lost or injured trail users. We call the
system Location Identification or LID for short. LID
consists of 5-1/2 x 7-1/2” white
signs with the park telephone number and a 3-digit number on
them. Most trail intersections in the park now have one of these
signs, usually placed 8 to 10 feet from the ground. Each intersection
has its own location number, which will correspond to a number
on the trail map. The map also will have an arrow at each intersection
showing the direction you are facing when looking at the sign.
Now you can tell which trail to take to get to your desired destination.
The park number on the signs can be used if you are lost and
need directions, but you need to know what the nearest LID number
local police departments now have the maps; please call 911
if there is a real emergency.
