<2>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Zell - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<3>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' (or point-to-point) distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Zell) 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 Zell. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Zell

We are not confident about the location and the position of our marker is only a rough guide.
