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 drawn from Point A (ie- Black Rock) 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 Black Rock. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Black Rock

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Black Rock. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.3005, Longitude: -60.3906    
<2>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<3>If we have found a location and have questions about the accuracy of our information, we will simply say that the marker is 'in the vicinity'. 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.
