Description Image shows a layout of the proposed site for the Rocky Knob Trail Lodge. A dirt road is visible in the foreground, and in the background there are scattered wooden buildings and houses at the bottom of a hill, and two larger white houses along the ridge at the top of the hill, many or all of which were removed for construction of the trail lodge. Wooden rail fences line the area. Sparse trees are scattered around the hill, and more dense trees appear to the right side of the photograph. Image taken by Kenneth C. McCarter in November of 1942.
