GVTA-sponsored hikes often provide coordinates to indicate a place for hikers to meet before the hike. Entering the coordinates into Google Maps or your GPS will generate an online map that will show you the location and provide you with directions to the location. Coordinates are also very helpful to use to indicate a remote, rural location where there is no conventional street address.
e.g., 43.417635, - 80.500218
Copy and paste the coordinates into Google maps and select directions.
