Turn signals are often non-directional—one blaze is placed directly above the other.

A blaze is a two- by six-inch vertical rectangle of paint in a prominent place along a trail. White-paint blazes mark the Appalachian Trail itself. Side trails and intersecting trails use blue blazes or other colors. Two blazes, one above the other, signal an obscure turn, route change, incoming side trail, or other situation that requires you to be especially alert. Where offset double blazes are used, turn in the direction of the top blaze.
