Bent Trail Trees in this area which could still be alive...but just barely.
This Bent Tree is located 1/2 mile east of the Long Trial, on the top of a knoll. I didn't notice at the time, but there is another bent tree just visible on the far left side in the top photo...at around 9 o'clock. I shall go back to see if it is natural or man made. This location is a knoll overlooking a swamp which serves as the headwaters of the Manhan River.
The Indians who roamed and hunted in these hills were Algonquins.
