scenic route toronto to montreal, is highway 7 worth the detour?
Headed to montreal this weekend and not really in too much of a rush to get there. Really don't want to just take 401/20 since I imagine the fall colours will be in full force this weekend.
I've taken highway 2 and the 1000 island parkway before and wasn't too impressed. I drive a bit of a sportier car so I'm looking for good twists, turns and elevation changes (I'm not expecting anything dramatic but something other then straught road would be nice)
My plan is to take 401 and head east til about 35/115 then switch to highway 7 continue east to ottawa (no plans to stop in ottawa) then take the 417 to montreal to make up a bit of time.
I'm thinking this might take 8-9 hours? Any other routes or minor detours? Going via algonquin park is a little too out of the way.
Thanks for the advice.
