Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Hay Lakes) to Point B.If you need the driving distance, we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Hay Lakes. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Hay LakesOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Hay Lakes. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 53.1974, Longitude: -113.0562

We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide. If we have too many doubts about the location, we will not include it in our database.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
