Footnotes ...

<1>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 from Point A (ie- Cootes Paradise) 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 Cootes Paradise. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Cootes ParadiseOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Cootes Paradise. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 43.2675, Longitude: -79.9456
