Footnotes ...

<1>Our distances are not driving distances, but are calculated as a 'point-to-point' distance that starts in Harrisonburg. A straight line distance ignores things like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line from Point A (ie- Harrisonburg) 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 Harrisonburg. Since we usually use Google Maps for our own planning, we've provided the following link: Google Map and Driving Directions starting from Harrisonburg

Our distance measurements begin at a specific point in Harrisonburg. The point that we are using is located at these GPS coordinates - Latitude: 38.4494, Longitude: -78.8686     [Map].
