Cornwall from Ottawa is fairly difficult. It may be just better to just hitchhike to the 401 (follow directions to Toronto), then at the onroutes ask people who are going to Cornwall. (Make sure you get dropped at a onroute going the direction Montreal rather than Toronto, or get dropped at prescott) This is a less direct ride but you have much better chances on the 401.
However, it is possible to hitchhike to Cornwall with a shorter method. Follow instructions hitchhike to Montreal. Tell the driver to drop you at Casselman. take 138 road. This is supposed to be a 80km limit road but drivers treat it like a highway so STAY SAFE.
here you can flag cars down directly to Cornwall. I did this in the winter hitch-biking with a foldable bike. Took 5 hours in total. [[User:Jackfang|Jackfang]]
