    I thought the first time I hiked Eagle Creek that there was a closed sign for Pinnacle creek. But I did not see a sign last weekend (at least nothing I could see from across the creek).

    I thought that trail was "closed" such that it was illegal to hike (like Scott Mtn trail between Rich Mtn and Schoolhouse gap). But then again, I didn't see a closed sign last weekend when I passed...
