Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance.

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 DeserontoOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Deseronto. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 44.1964, Longitude: -77.0491
