Ice Skating. A pretty typical winter pastime. We’re all used to skating around an oval rink, whether indoors or out. The people of Ontario though have come up with a more unique, glorious way to enjoy this cold weather activity.
At the Arrowhead Provincial Park in Muskoka, visitors can travel a 1.3 kilometer trail through a picturesque, snow laden forest, instead of a boring old rink.
Usually the trail is open each year from January until March, depending on weather.
The park also hosts Fire & Ice nights on select winter nights. As if a skating trail through the forest wasn’t awesome enough, they’ve found an even cooler way to experience it! Once the sun goes down and the stars come out, the Ice Skating Trail is lit by hundreds of tiki torches lighting your way as you carve through the Evergreens.
