Walker pavement marking for MUP lane

Iím looking for a standard (if there is one) stencil to mark a MUP lane for foot traffic. My initial search did not turn up anything so any help would be appreciated. TIA

LOL, what you think walkers actually will stay in line?

At my local bike path there is a parallel walking/running path marked with signs that point walkers to the decomposed granite covered path and cyclists to the paved path. Just the other day there were three "wide loads**" walking side by side on the paved path, very much filling the width. And of course, after my "passing on the left" warning... one of them just has to blurt out something.

**yes this is derogatory... but had you seen this sight... well, I guess they were trying to exercise... sigh.

Bek has posted images of a road in his area with a bike lane with a ped lane to the right of it. I can't find it right now but I'm sure he could send it to you.

Oh, man, I must be distracted. They just finished a MUP/sidepath near a large business complex near me. They've marked the path with direction arrows along with bike and ped symbols. I'll be out of town for the next couple of days but if you stil haven't found anything by then, I can get a picture for you. (And yes, I think the design is a disaster but that's another thread )
