Usually brown, the marker has space for applying stickers such as "Designated Route" or "Wilderness Area Boundary -- No Vehicles." People like to shoot, break off, or otherwise tear down signs, so carsonite sign provide a low-cost mechanism for marking sites and easily replacing damaged signs.

T-post Sign. A metal fence post, T-shaped in cross-section and usually used for barbed wire fences, used as route and boundary markers. Usually green, the post has bumps on one side to facilitate holding things in place (e.g., signs) when wired to the post. Related to barbed wire fences are barbed wire gates.
