<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Hillsboro - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Hillsboro) 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 Hillsboro.
