A project was kicked off on May 5, 2007, to improve trail marking at Horn Pond, and create an improved trail map. This project has been a coordinated effort between WREN and the Woburn Conservation Commission. Several wooden posts were initially installed along two trails to the west of the pond. These are known as the George W. Olson and William Ginevicz Memorial Trails. In 2008, a number of these posts were better anchored. On Conservation Day 2009 (May 2), all but one of the remaining posts were installed.

Wooden posts have now been placed not only along the Memorial Trails (those identified with red or orange bands) but also at several major trail intersections, identified only with numbers. Numbered posts correspond to numbered positions on a map. On the Memorial Trails, additional posts without numbers (but with colored bands) are included to help direct your path. The following temporary map provides the location of the posts along the major trails.
