Long Description:
One thing to note is that this benchmark is on the old section of road, which is to the north of the present road. Easiest way to get to this bit of road is to go east on Seven Mile Dam Road to Seven Mile Dam, then take the road which heads southwest just before the hairpin turn slightly past the dam. You'll find the BM on the north side of the road, on the top of the big rock with the faded "BM" painted on the face. It's 1.8 km. west of the turnoff described above. The turnoff is 13.1 km. east on Seven Mile Road from Highway 22A.
