Hearst is well known as the Northern terminus of the Algoma Central Railway. Each year thousands of travelers enjoy the fabulous scenery as their train rolls and rumbles through the Algoma region on its way to Hearst. This is the far western edge of James Bay Frontier, but it's still in the midst of Northern Ontario's exceptional outdoor adventure country. Hearst is a key forestry centre and home to some of the largest and most productive sawmills in the North. Lumber from Hearst has been shipped around the world.
The community is also known for its fishing and hunting. There are several local resort and lodge operations that cater to international travelers who have come to hunt moose and bear or to land a trophy sized Northern pike. This is also a key destination for winter travelers, thanks largely to Algoma Centrals snow trail excursion which connect snowmobilers with the huge network of northern trails.
For a small town, Hearst has a wealth of restaurants, hotels and motels to suit every taste. The town also has several campground operators. Also, Hearst is close to no less than three provincial parks; Fushimi Lake to the northwest, Nagagamisis to the southwest and Missinaibi just to the east at Mattice.
