Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance starting from Aspen Park. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Aspen Park) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for Aspen Park. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Aspen Park
