<2>Population counts have been provided by the U.S. Census Bureau. For more detail, please visit our Census Page for Milo.
<3>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Milo - 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 drawn from Point A (ie- Milo) 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 Milo.
