Special Navigation Instructions1. About 1.8 miles into the walk, you will turn left off SR860 onto SR660 but the street sign says Red Hill Rd. There is a tiny 660 sign on the right hand side of the road hidden by trees.
2. After 1.2 miles on VA22, you will take a slight left onto SR615 but the street sign says Columbia Road.
3. There is no street sign for Bayberry Lane (gravel road). But you will see a sign that says “Spring Creek Construction Entrance.” Bayberry Lane is just past Zion Court Road (if you get to Springfield Baptist Church, you have gone too far). Follow the gravel road around until you hit the Spring Creek neighborhood, which will take you to the Best Western.

Miscellaneous InformationNavigation:
Each Google Map route will have a starting point and multiple stops.  
iPhone users: when you arrive at a stop, you must remove the PREVIOUS starting point, making your current stop the NEW starting point. 
Android users:  As long as you “arrive” at each stop, it will automatically advance to the next one.  Otherwise, you will have to remove a stop.
EXCEPTION: Do NOT remove any stops when you are in a dead zone! This will cancel the map and you will not be able to relaunch it.
Dead zone: in poor or no cell phone coverage, you will still be able to see the route since GPS continues to work.  Just don’t exit the map or try to remove a stop or you will lose the route.  

Obey all traffic laws.  Use crosswalks and sidewalks wherever possible.  When sidewalks are not available, generally it is recommended to walk against traffic but there may be times where the shoulder is wider walking WITH traffic.  Be careful approaching curves and hills as visibility will be limited! 
Walk with a buddy.
