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.

Native American Trail TreesTrail Tree on Mount Arvon

in Native American Trail Trees

This tree is located on Mount Arvon, the highest point in Michigan. The summit is completely tree covered, affording no view. It is likely that this tree pointed to the village that is the present town of L'Anse at the base of the Keweenaw Bay.
