Trail in Sign Language

Learn how to sign trail (or path!) in sign language.

1. Hold both hands in front of you. Palms are facing each other, fingers straight, and hands a few inches apart.
2. Keeping your hands parallel, move them both forward in a wavy motion.
3. This sign looks like you are showing a winding trail or path going through the forest. Use this visual to help you remember the sign.

Teaching Tips:

  • Is there a trail near you? Go on a hike and follow a map or tree markings to stay on the trail. Practice the sign as you hike.
  • Create alphabet games for kids with a trail! Put a long piece of brown paper on the wall or a table and label all along it with letters in order A – Z. As children learn the sign for each letter, they can move a marker up the trail.

Trail! Show the trail or the path. Trail!
