    Smile cut north/cut south

    Hello. Would you please tell me what "cut" means in each sentence below? Thank you.

    (from A Bird on Water Street by Elizabeth O. Dulemba)

    1. We headed up Killer Hill and cut south on Poplar Trail. (Does it mean "We headed up Killer Hill and went south on Poplar Trail."?)

    2. We headed west into the Tohachee River Gorge, but cut north on that same winding road I’d seen Eli go up
    when we’d gone pumpkin huntin’ before Halloween.
    (Does it mean "We headed west into the Tohachee River Gorge, but turned to the north on ~ "?)
