Yellow Blaze

On the Appalachian Trail official markings are white blazes with blue blazes marking alternate routes. The term yellow blaze has come to mean catching a lift between sections of trail by car, the yellow blaze being the line down the center of the road. Interestingly, on the Pacific Crest Trail the official trail is marketed by a yellow blaze.
