East to Nipigon and Sault Ste. Marie
On the east side of town, the intersection between the Trans Canada, Highway 17/11 and Balsam st. is a good spot. Set of lights, nice pull off, great view.
There are two ways to hitch out of Thunder Bay:
- 1) Take the #17 highway westward from close to the Confederation College.
- 2) Take Dawson Road northwest from close to the County Fair Mall, which meets up with the 17 main highway within half an hour.
Both are major routes for into and out of Thunder Bay. Hitchwiki user Stickbugg is not sure which is easier, but he says that taking the #17 at first was very difficult and only one person stopped in 6 hours.
West to Fort Frances Border Crossing to Minnesota along the H-11
South to Grand Portage Border Crossing and Duluth, Minnesota
