Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Crean HillOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Crean Hill. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 46.4272, Longitude: -81.3517
