Two places map programs may get it wrong for our location

  1. Hit  “DETOUR BY ROAD" if available in any program that tries to send you down BOY SCOUT CAMP ROAD (impassable sugar sand, usually safe only for 4-wheel drive & off-road vehicles). You are in the wrong place, at the north end of Osteen, if you can't see Saddle Creek fence & mailboxes within 25 feet of a yellow NO OUTLET that sign, you should turn around and go south on State Road 415. Enter our part of Osteen further south, near Volusia County biking/hiking overpass on SR415
  2.  About a block  after entering Saddle Creek dirt-road, turn left at V/curve to stay on Saddle Creek Farms Road. Most programs have right picture but some say to turn wrong way
