GPS Users: 

GPS will direct you to the wrong location on March Hill Road if you enter 507 as the address. Try entering 68 March Hill Road... Go figure!

 

GPS may also direct you to take some questionable gravel roads. If in doubt, stick to the paved roads.

 

Smart Phone Users: 

There is poor cell reception here on Distant Hill. It would be wise to print out the directions before you come.
