    Default Shenandoah Mileage question, near Elkwallow Wayside

    I recently moved, and haven't found my AT guides. While I have AWOL's Guide, I'm looking for one little bit of mileage in Shenandoah National Park that isn't listed. I'm thinking the Databook might have it. Between the Neighbor Mountain Trail/Byrd's Nest #4 trail and the Jeremy's Run Trail (near Elkwallow Wayside), there is another trail, possibly the Thornton River Trail, which heads to the east. Can someone tell me the mileage from some known point--the Elkwallow Wayside or the Jeremy's Run trail or Beahms Gap Overlook or the Neighbor Mountain Trail-- to that trail (Thornton River Trail?)? I'm thinking it's a couple of miles, but would like to know for sure. Thanks.

    You are correct. Mileage from Thornton River Trail to Jeremy's Run Trail is 2 miles . Beahms Gap Overlook is south of Thornton River Trail nearly the same distance.
    Getting lost is a way to find yourself.

    Most of these points are not in my 2012 copy of the Companion, but all the points you mention are on the elevation profile in the map I have for the northern district of SNP. Here are the distance points as marked on that profile:

    19.2 Elkwallow Trail
    19.7 Jeremys Run Trail
    21.8 Thornton River Trail
    23.0 Spur Trail to Neighbor Mtn. Parking
    23.3 Neighbor Mtn. Trail and Byrds Nest 4 Trail
    24.1 Byrds Nest 4 Access Road

    Looks like Neighbor Mtn. Trail to Thornton River Trail is about 1.5 miles. Hope this helps.
