1947 Elkton Quadrangle


In this 1947 edition of the USGS quadrangle for Elkton, VA, the Skyline Drive is shown as it is currently routed. The Appalachian Trail has been moved up onto Big Flat Mountain and across the saddle up and over Loft Mountain, where it descends steeply to Ivy Creek. This is essentially the present route of the A.T. … except for subsequent re-routing to avoid the present Loft Mountain Campground.
