Spring Valley Trail

Year: 2015

Spring Valley Trail lets visitors discover and engage the landscape through wayfinding. 

Spring Valley Trail is a scenic trail that traverses140 kilometers in northern Israel. Despite the rich variety of landscapes, ecologies, water-works, farming settlements and communities, the trail is not readily identifiable and is under-used.

Can wayfinding create a spatial identity for the valley residents and visitors alike? The proposed spatial wayfinding aims at constructing both awareness and exposure to the landscapes of the Spring Valley Trail. Employing signage, localized landscape interventions and a mobile interface, the wayfinding system creates a new interface between the landscape, uses, and users bringing the trail to life.
