Hearst is a city in Northern Ontario.

Get in[edit]

By car[edit]

Highway 11 runs northwest from North Bay as a northern alternate route in the Trans-Canada Highway system; this route was extended from Hearst through Geraldton to Nipigon in 1943, as a final gravel link which enabled the first complete trip across Canada by motorcar in 1946. This road is now a two-lane paved provincial highway.

By train[edit]

Algoma Central Railway passenger service operates on summer and winter schedules with three trains a week going south to Sault Ste. Marie making all station stops and flag stops en route.

By bus[edit]

Ontario Northland bus services provide daily local service to Cochrane.

By snowmobile[edit]

OFSC trails connect snowmobilers to various Northern Ontario communities. A trail permit is required to ride on the trails.
