Well we haven't had a thread about trail signs for several years:  https://www.trailadvocate.org/sf-forum/historical-items-of-interest/oregon-skyline-trail-metal-enameled-signs/

So I thought I'd start one here.

The sign at the base of Pyramid Butte is gone.  It looks like the bolts were cut carefully with a hacksaw.  Does anyone know where the sign has gone to?  You can find a picture of the sign here:  https://www.trailadvocate.org/?page_id=1235

If you have any pictures of trail signs, new or old, and want to share, please post them!

I just found the National Museum of Forest Service History.  Here's a picture they have of how they did it back in the olden days.

It's kind of blurry, but I think it says "OREGON SKYLINE TRAIL"

That is really sad.  I really liked that sign.  I certainly hope it went somewhere to be saved.  Same with the sign on Park Ridge that has disappeared with no traces to be found.

Here is a picture of the sign if you don't want to click the link:
