Driving from Toronto to Ottawa - Best Route?
Wondering if anyone has ever taken Hwy 7 the entire way there to the 417 as a way to avoid 401 traffic.

You may be right but at least you are moving and not stuck behind boat trailers, campers, buses, milk trucks, tractors...you get it.mlc2000 wrote:Hiway 7 route is more interesting. 401 to 416 is dull.

I've done that once, only in reverse. Lots of fun to drive, but I stopped in Barry's Bay at a friend's cottage, and in Huntsville to visit some other friends along the way. However, driving through the park can be a bit of a pain in that:fogo wrote:Has anyone ever travelled to Ottawa from Barrie alon this route:
Hwy 11, to Hwy 60 through Algoquin Park, then up Highway 17 to Ottawa.
Any suggestions, recommendations, warnings, etc.?

That isn't bad at all. The actual distance travelled looks about 50KM less... I guess the speed limit on the 7 is only 80?
