Potomac Heritage NST: Route marking and graphic identity guidelines (2015, 5.7 MB, PDF): For use by Trail segment managers and volunteers, the guidelines are intended to foster continuity of experience between and among segments of the Trail network and to enhance experiences for all Trail users.

A "Transitional Management Assistance Program" study, completed in May 2013, provides direction for annual work plans as NPS roles for the PHT evolve from planning and technical assistance to a set of broader operations.
