Coming from Sault Ste. Marie
Take Hwy 17 (Trans Canada Highway) east heading towards Sudbury. Just before you reach Sudbury go north on Hwy 144. You keep heading north driving trough Onaping and Cartier. About 20 miles (30 km) before you reach Gogama you will turn right (East) on Hwy 560. Drive east for about an hour. Just before you reach Gowganda turn right (south) on Auld Reekie Camp Road.
Coming from Southern Ontario (Niagara Falls or Fort Erie)
Take the QEW (Queen Elizabeth Way) north. The QEW turns east after you go over the big bridge near Hamilton and heards towards Toronto. Drive to Oakville and right by the massive Ford auto plant (1 mile past Trafalgar Road) take the cut-off for Highway 403. Take Highway 403 to highway 401. Go East on the 401 until you reach the cut-off for highway 400 north. Follow the 400 all the way to the city of Barrie. Just past the city of Barrie the 400 ends. It splits into highway 69 and highway 11. Take highway 11 to North Bay. Follow highway 11 to New Liskard (now called Temiskaming Shores). Take highway 65 west to the village of Elk Lake. Turn left on Highway 560 west to Gowganda. Just past Gowganda turn left on Auld Reekie Camp Road.
Coming from Ottawa or Montreal
If coming from Montreal take Highway 40 across into Ontario and highway 40 to Ottawa becomes highway 417 to Ottawa. Follow 417 past Ottawa and past Kanata. About 4 miles past Kanata 417 takes a sharp turn north and turns into Highway 17. Follow highway 17 all the way to highway 11, which is just south of North Bay. Take highway 11 to North Bay. Follow highway 11 to New Liskard ( now called Temiskaming Shores). Take highway 65 west to the village of Elk Lake. Turn left on Highway 560 west to Gowganda. Just past Gowganda turn left on Auld Reekie Camp Road.
Coming from North Bay
When you take highway 11 through North Bay it can be a little confusing. You need to follow the "to highway 11" signs. Highway 11 takes a zip-zag through North Bay and then after that you drive straight north.
Coming from New Liskeard
The Town of Haileybury, New Liskeard and the Township of Dymond do not exist anymore. They have been amalgamated into Temiskaming Shores. There will still be old signs on the road that say New Liskeard or Haileybury, which may confuse people.
Safety with Moose
Between North Bay and Hailebury on Hwy 11 be 110% alert and do not speed, especially in the spring and at night (any time of year). That stretch of road has the highest rate of Moose/vehicle collisions in Ontario. Hitting a Moose is the same as hitting a brick wall or having a head-on collision with another vehicle.
