Dorthea Dix Park
Bike Trail System
The Dorthea Dix Park area is 306 acres of varied terrain in the middle of Raleigh. A current problem in the city of Raleigh is that there is a large group of cyclists who ride: road cyclists who ride to workout, students commuting, mountain bikers who ride for the thrill. There are also many children in surrounding areas who have no safe place to ride because of busy streets. Can we design bike paths for these varied users to all use inside Dix Park?
I developed a map for three different types of cyclists, a trail signage system to correspond to each, and a system of pavement paint to correspond with each path and marker.
