Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from PikoganOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Pikogan. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 48.5992, Longitude: -78.1199

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.
<3>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
<4>While we have tried to pick reasonable speeds, the rate of travel is very theoretical - obstacles like fences, hills, lakes, river crossings and rest stops have been ignored. When we say 'Days' of travel, we're assuming 8 hours of travel per day.
