Easements: The property is located in an area where oil/gas exploration is common. One well site is located on the tract and is accessible from gravel roads coming in from the frontage along CR 2131.

The bulk of this traffic is limited to the extreme northeastern corner of the property along a well-developed gravel road which the property owner also has the use of.
