Agree with Mannivu about information board but would also put in a tourism tag:

tourism=information information=board

See: https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:tourism%3Dinformation

A smaller sign at a trail junction, etc. I'd tag as information=guidepost but this one doesn't quite fit that in my mind.

Yeah, I too wasn't sure, but it's the most suitable for this occurrence.

I'm not sure if I should ask this as a new post, but would name=Colonial Knob Walkway be appropriate too?

I might add highway=trailhead to the area (including parking, etc.) See https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Tag:highway%3Dtrailhead Then the whole area with parking and sign could be name="Colonial Knob Walkway Trailhead" or name="Colonial Knob Trailhead" (whatever the local name for that type of thing is).

And I'd put the name="Colonial Knob Walkway" on the highway=path, highway=footway, or highway=pedestrian (which ever way the walkway is tagged).

Directly using name=Colonial Knob Walkway Camp Elsdon Entrance could be fine already, as "entrance" here is shown for the trail.

@stf Since this sounds like a campsite, any pointers on where to put the highway=trailhead relative to tourism=camp_site? A trailhead can include a camp site, and a camp site can house a trailhead.

For duration and length, best to create a type=destination_sign relation (https://wiki.openstreetmap.org/wiki/Relation:destination_sign) with the sign, as well as a route=foot (or route=hiking?) relation for the entire Walkway.

Probably the more suitable tag is information=board.
