Parry Sound to Ottawa through the Muskoka

We'd like to travel one-way from Parry Sound to Ottawa via the Muskoka. Are there one-way car rentals from Parry Sound? What about taking a bus (or buses)?

There is no direct route, but you can work your way toward Ottawa through Algonquin Park which whole trip would be a pretty drive. I don't think you will find one-way car rentals or a direct bus trip to Ottawa either. But google Parry Sound and you might find something.

There's at least an Enterprise Rent-A-Car in Parry Sound, maybe other agencies. You could probably get a one-way rental from them but it would be expensive, how much so I don't know. Give em a call.

Not sure how you'd get there by bus. Parry Sound is served by the Ontario Northland bus service but it's on a route from Toronto, I don't know of any bus service that heads east from Parry Sound.

The most direct driving route would take you right through Muskoka and Algonquin Park. Take the 141 east to Highway 11, go north on 11 to 60, then east on 60 all the way to 17 and take 17/417 into Ottawa. Alternately, from Rosseau you can branch off the 141 and take the more trecherous Aspdin Road straight into Huntsville and get on Hwy 60 from there.

Thank you very much for both replies about how to go one-way through the Muskoka from Parry Sound to Ottawa without a personal vehicle. I've followed up on your suggestions about bus and car rental, and we've decided it's more reasonable and practical to take the bus to Toronto. Hopefully we'll have an opportunity to visit Algonquin on another trip.
