Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance. A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Beaver Park) 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 Beaver Park. Since we usually use Google Maps, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Beaver ParkOur distance measurements begin at a specific point in Beaver Park. The point we use is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 36.6633, Longitude: -79.3456

<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.
