Trail signs are used to communicate when hiking group has become split up or if a second group is following the same route.
Trail signs are needed when:
Signs may be clear for everyone to see or may be hidden so that only the informed will see them.
The circle and the dot ⊙ indicates the end of the trail.
It can be found on the BP's grave.
Sometimes a trail sign is left to confirm you are still on the right track.
A stick through a leaf is inconspicuous and unlikely to have happened naturally, (the same with a small stick of leaves from another tree).
Don't go here
This sign may be made from small stones or crossed sticks or scratched in the soil.
The aim is to prevent the following group from going along the wrong path if they have missed a turn in the trail.
This is not used in the modern scouting as it could be interpreted as graffitti in a natural area as it goes against the ethos of 'leave no trace'.
