Description:
Trail trees are trees that were modified by the American Aboriginal peoples in order to signify trails, campsites, or special locations (water supply, food, safety, etc.). Often these were oak saplings that are given a unique bend, usually pointed in the direction of the point of interest.

I've often wondered how this tree came to have such a distinctive branch structure, and when I learned about the native practice of creating "trail trees" by bending the branches rather than by blazing them, I really wondered...

Waterfalls on the Genessee River make it impossible to navigate inland from its inlet. Centuries ago, the native Indians connected to the Genessee River and other inland waterways from Irondequoit Bay and Creek to the Grenessee by this route.
