Hearst is a city in Northern Ontario.
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.
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.
Ontario Northland bus services provide daily local service to Cochrane.
OFSC trails connect snowmobilers to various Northern Ontario communities. A trail permit is required to ride on the trails.
