Footnotes ...

<1>We use the term 'Historic' broadly and it generally means that the community no longer exists. However, it can also mean that the community might still exist, but was significantly larger or had a more 'official' existence in the past than it does now. Unfortunately our sources of data have proven to be unreliable. If you can provide us with more specific information about Devils Slide, please let us know so that we can improve our accuracy.
<2>If you're interested in how the shape of Utah's counties, including Morgan, have changed over time, we recommend the Atlas of Historical County Boundaries.
<3>An 'estimated' location is one where we have been given GPS coordinates, but are unable to verify the accuracy of those coordinates. That said, we have some confidence that we have placed the marker near the actual location. A typical reason for being unable to verify a location is that it might be on private property or maybe historic and gone without an obvious trace.
<4>The elevation is an estimate for the area around Devils Slide - it will be higher in some places and lower in others.
<5>Area code (385) is an overlay for area code (801).
<6>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'straight-line' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Devils Slide) 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 Devils Slide. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link for your convenience: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Devils Slide

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Devils Slide. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 41.0631, Longitude: -111.5430       In this case, the coordinates for Devils Slide have been provided by the Geographic Names Information System (GNIS).
<7>The location has been supplied by the Geographic Names Information System - which is maintained by the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). While these values should be definitive, we have found that accuracy can vary and you should double-check the location if accuracy is required.
<8>While we're fans and frequent users of TripAdvisor, you should know that we're also members of the TripAdvisor affiliate program.
