<2>The pronunciation we've provided is our attempt to give a phonetic pronunciation for Steptoe. While it might not be exactly right, hopefully it will be close. If we have it wrong or there's a better way to pronounce the name, please contact us through our Feedback Page.

A straight line distance ignores obstructions like rivers, canyons, lakes, et cetera - it's truly a line drawn from Point A (ie- Steptoe) 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 Steptoe.
