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- North Eagle Butte) to Point B.

If you need the driving distance (or directions), we recommend that you use one of the Mapping Services listed on our Map Page for North Eagle Butte. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from North Eagle Butte
