Advisory signs help path users to act responsibly, to be aware of hazards and give information about accessibility; in other words, information in addition to basic direction, destination and distance.

For further information about advisory signs take a look at Paths for All's good practice guide: icon Signage Guidance for Outdoor Access - A Guide to Good Practice.

The following images from Oatridge College's demonstration path give examples of advisory signs made from different materials.
