made the long drive today to try and reach the trailhead for American Eagle Trail that Junctions at the end of the Euchre bar Trail. upon arriving to Pioneer Mine Road which leads to the trailhead we found that the gate was locked it is unclear as to whether it was the property owners at the very end of pioneer Mine Road or if it was the forest service I contacted the Foresthill ranger station and was not able to get a clear answer as to whether this is a public or a private road online research didn't yield any results either. Basically this Trail is inaccessible at least based on our experience today although pictures online from Google Maps show that at some point the door is open and another reviewer on stated he was able to access the site perhaps it may be accessible later on in the year we did cross the barrier and Hike about a mile-and-a-half on the main road on Pioneer Mine Road But realize that from where we left off it was still another five point five miles to the trailhead and it would inevitably cross s with the property that appears on Google Maps would not suggest this Trail for the time being completely inaccessible
