Many on a mission to find bent "marker" trees
Unique sight part of Native American culture
Some Native American “marker” trees are shaped like a “4,” including this one near Bobby Thomas Trail in Hall County.
Danny Head of Clermont always wondered about the oddly-bent trees near the intersection of the Chattahoochee River and Mossy Creek. Little did he know trees with a similar shape were used by Native Americans to mark trading trails, bodies of water or even battlefield sites. “I just thought it was a funny-looking tree,” he said.
